Following Steveo's lead from last week, I did a bit of Yoko analysis. Evidence supports Steveo's assertion that there has been a slight drop-off in airplay of late. But this century Ken's Show rates at number six in the top ten shows playing Yoko. Results viewable here:

@Ken: that "world of production music" show was great! I think I have a bunch of cassette recordings of those shows.
I need a new belt on my cassette recorder to confirm. Speaking of the WFMU past, I was astonished to hear Don Sleppinan playing on Radio Ravioli. "Synthetic Pleasure" was the WFMU program from back in the day where one could hear such music.

fӨfӨ: if you don't wanna look it up: regular x-rays are picking up the xrays that go through a body or object, backscatter just means picking up the reflected rather than transmitted rays. so you can do it from one side, like this police van.... they don't have to get on both sides of you
