I did, Ken. I finished episode 6 (the Nora-centric episode) on Monday night. I'm enjoying the show. It's just purposely not explaining a lot, and it's kind of frustrating, but I'm being patient.

I thought it was a cold but then I did get a fever yesterday and sweated it out so I guess it's a very mild form of Ebola.

  Wed. 10/28/15 9:49am Listener Robert:

Fuller explanation: A few yrs. ago as an experiment, Ken started starting this playlist a little early, maybe by half an hour, to take requests. That seemed to work.

There'd been times during the show when some of the bigger animated GIF files in the playlist frame were crashing it as HIS end, causing him to have to restart it with a substitute graphic. So Ken saved up 1 or 2 of those to post pre-show, with a SCHEDULED restart with the show itself.

That worked so well, Ken started starting the page from home at about 6 AM, adding more GIFs (to near capacity) before he got into the office, still soliciting requests.

Maurice LaMarche's appearance in that as Orson Welles is what confirmed my friend Davar's belief that the voice of the Brain on the mouse cartoons was a Welles caricature. I told Davar that the mouse sounded like Peter Lorre to me. On interview, LaMarche said he did the voice as a combination of Lorre & Welles.
  Wed. 10/28/15 10:28am P-90:

Ass-kissing compliments dept:
1.) I, for one , found Tony Shaloub's appearance funny and entertaining. I hope he did too (one can always hope, right?)
2.) While the gifs on Ken's page are always enjoyable, may I opine that the selection this morning is particularly excellent?

On the bright side, this would be a great opportunity to prank phone call the other DJs as Leonard Cohen.

@Guido Thought it must be, the story is a bit too far-fetched. Its a pretty flawless pastiche though.

@P-90: Yup, we are getting like a consistent rain today that only ends tomorrow afternoon. My sundries are fine. And I have a horses hit tech problem that I can occupy myself with. So hey!

Ken, this new voice agrees with you. It's kind of sexy.
Avatar    Wed. 10/28/15 10:46am Guido from Cologne:

the surname of the musician behind Kosmischer Läufer is "Zeichnete", which in return is a direct translation of one of the publishers surname: "Drew".
"Zeichnete" would be a very unusual German surname.

If you like Kosmischer Laeufer (and they are on Bandcamp...) you may also like to listen to the excellent Bedroom Cassette Masters compilations of 80s-90s synth music made with 4-tracks and other prosumer equipment and distributed on cassette: bedroomcassettemasters.bandcamp.com

Sick demon voice Ken sounds exactly like healthy demon voice Ken. If Ken had embraced the halloween theme and gone demon voice all day, we never would've known he was sick.

He also wouldn't be able to garner sympathy pledges, so... being sick worked out in the end.
Avatar Wed. 10/28/15 10:50am Nasty Les:

Yeah, I had read that. Apparently the record label said "Well, of course that is not his real name...", but I hadn't heard the bit about the publisher's surname being "Drew" - seems to be the final nail in the coffin

Far from normal, warrior Ken. I saw you playing chess with death in the FMU parking lot this morning just so you could do this show.

How do you cheat at chess? Aside from moving your opponent's pieces around when she gets up to go to the bathroom or get more beer.

@pocketvito: You stand up at the table, and tell your opponent… “I know what life is and it’s not staring at some black and white board moving pieces around all day. Bye!” and walk away.

$47k to the overall goal and then Ken can introduce the redesigned website!

Wow. That's good. Like in War Games, the only way to win is not to play.

@pocketvito: No disrespect to anyone who likes to play chess—even kids—but I have found that adults that are still into chess (like really into it) are as worse or as bad as sports fans go as far as seeing all of life as an endless, polarized conflict. I mean Bobby Fischer was a lunatic.
