This is episode 17

Ya carry sixteen tons and whadda ya get?

Well, we done that show already, With Scarlatti. I can only lake about an hour of that before it gets on my nerves.

Harpsichord is too punctilious and Scarlatti may have been a genius but there are things about the quality of the sound as it issues forth from the instrument that just overwhelm any performance or performer.

So this time, to recover from that, we're going back to the big bands with an opener I'm betting is going to do much to make amends:

"Seven Come Eleven" by "Benny Goodman Orchestra" here on WSPCs ThymeWarp.


We got PSAs:


Campus Safety urges students, faculty and staff to sign up for text alerts, online @

This will be used to inform students, faculty and staff in an emergency.

This was useful last year in the bomb scare.

To sign up, students must know their Spirit ID # (Bring their Saint Peter's College ID.)


There are still no prerecorded promos, well except for "moi."

Tuesdays at 5 at WSPC:

"Peak Oil" , what it is, what it means to us all (and believe me it does, if you thought that 4.00 a gallon gasoline was bad, (and don't let the pre election slump and sag fool you,) the price of oil will reveal just how incomodious a commodity it is.

I'll be featuring podsafe music so I can retransmit them on a full-blown podcast, with an RSS feed, on iTunes without having to pay my soul out to the RIAA.


This episode, you're getting the music I'd picked out for the previous show.

Not one to waste a play list, we'll "Hail Britannia" for under an hour and then you can enjoy your suppers (unless you've caught the podcast so I have no idea of when you're listening,) and go and watch Jeopardy! or get up to whatever devilment your little hearts desire.
