Lindsey fucking killed it at the Hot Dolphin show.  At some time, during her usual insane performance, she knocked over her beer.  I bought her another and brought it up to the stage.  She said, “Thanks, Kontra!”  It was kind of weird to be called that again.  It’s been more than six months.

    My little brother got into outer space and stuff so my step-mom bought him a place mat with all the planets on it. When I first saw it, I was upset, because it was newer and so Pluto wasn’t labeled. I was about to say something when I noticed something…


    Pluto is there.


    The artist remembered Pluto.




    The artist drew Pluto crying.

  11. Fund Drive Donation: WRIR-LP 97.3 FM

    Well, 2 days later and I’ve finished working on my show. That’s the way it works, folks. I come home from work and spend a few hours hunting and gathering music. Then I sort through it, picking out my favorite bits to share with you and putting it in an order that I think makes sense. I’m so thankful to have WRIR as a way of sharing my love of music with you.

    WRIR needs to raise $40,000 during our Spring Fund Drive. Any amount that you can donate will be put to good use to continue to bring you the programming that you enjoy. Please help us out.

Daylight Saving Time ends tomorrow morning, at 2am Sunday, March 9th. Set your clocks forward by 1 hour when you go to bed, and remember to do your twice-yearly checkup on your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. 
Here is some smoke alarm maintenance and safety information from the San Francisco Fire Department. Here is a more thorough review of smoke detector use and laws related to alarms. Smoke detectors save an average of one life every single day- it’s important to keep yours in working order. 
If you live in Richmond and don’t have a smoke detector, the Richmond Fire Department will provide you one for free, with batteries, and perform the installation. Find out more here. If you live somewhere else, contact your local government to find out if you can get a free smoke alarm. 
Here is some information on carbon monoxide poisoning and the maintenance of a carbon monoxide detector from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. In America alone, there’s an average of 170 deaths per year from this colorless, odorless, oxygen-displacing gas. It’s known as the “silent killer” for a reason! 
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, contact your local fire authorities to inquire about free or loaned alarms with lights or bed-shakers.

    Hey everybody!  WRIR has set up this neat-o radio archive that lets you stream locally produced programs that aired during the last 2 weeks.  It’s a great way to catch up on programs you may have missed. You can hear my show by scrolling down to find the Thursday Breakfast Blend with Galaxy Girl.
