Dave Higgins is a hilarious actor/comic. He does a sketch old timey radio show. I talk too much. I think I dorked out at him too much. He holds his own! It’s political, it’s reminiscing, it’s great. He’s great. Enjoy.

    that "whole" problem of the needle scratches (and pops and clicks) remains.

    Wow...another no-time moment, but a lot to agree and disagree with and a lot to expand upon, particularly about the flavors of libertarianism (some of which is utterly communal...the term was first used by socialistic anarchists, after all)...but the notion of Studs Terkel being a CHICAGO TRIBUNE guy, when Terkel was perhaps after only Saul Alinksy the most obvious icon of the left out of Chicago after the Heroic Years of Emma Goldman, et alia, and the TRIBUNE, shall we put it, Not being the Voice of the Common Folk for at leas the majority of those years...that was worth a chuckle (I certainly am of the age of increasing brain freeze as well, so I have sympathy). Terkel was mostly a radio guy, who did a lot of television over the years and started transcribing his interviews into bestselling books of oral history in the '60s.

    Ach, more anon. (That's an English-major word, doncha know.)

    And the 78 Was the single of up through the early '50s, and a bit later in what was in those days still charmingly referred to as "race" and "hillbilly" music, since the Disadvantaged were seen as unlikely to have picked up new phonographs to replace their old Victrolas...with RCA championing the new 45 RPM and CBS the new 33 RPM speeds, so that you didn't need three 12" discs to put RHAPSODY IN BLUE on any longer, with 33 RPM 7-inch EPs and a few early RCA 12-inch albums at 45 RPM...later, there was a vogue for "talking books" at 16 RPM. Rhino Records, the nostalgia folks, were even issuing some juke-box-oriented 78s in the '80s...and, frankly, 78s recorded with modern techniques sound just a bit better than 45s, in turn just a smidge better than 33s...but since the laser stylus was never made commercially available in a big way, at least, that who problem of the needle scratches remains.

    Ah, well. Thanks, yet again...
