Yesterday USA

Hi. Sorry I wasn't on for the past couple of days. My modem was knocked out for some screwy reason and I can't access the blog or anything else for that matter without it. Talk about a bad coulple of days. You can't really live without high speed if it's gone. Those of you who remember the days of 28.8 know exactly what I'm talking about. When you got somethings fast, you cherished it. Then, things got quicker and you had to get a 56. Soon, it was time stop the stuttering and false loading and really boot up. The Comic Box still runs under 28.8 because the owners of the property never expected the internet in '86, so they let it go. I don't think they plan on outfitting the plaza with wiring, because they are, in my own interpretation, too dang cheap. So, I have to suffer at work. I can't even listen to my favorite staion online, Yesterday USA .

While I'm at it, I'm going to start putting up more of my recommendations for great pop culture links I can pass it along to you. Y-USA is a site for fans of classic radio drama, comedy and music from the first 50 years of the 20th century. It's on 24 hours a day, run only by listener support. It's been one of my favorite sites for years and the big reason I got a cable modem. It's founder, Bill Bragg has one of the nicest, freindliest voices I've heard on the air and each of the hosts of the various shows have a wonderful personality. The shows itself are just fantasic to listen to since this is pure drama. Each of these makes you use your imagination of what Jack Benny's reactions may be, or just how ominous is the Shadow when he does appear, if you can find him. It's a sheer pleasure everyday to come home after a hard day's work or whatever to tune in. Give it a shot once, especially if you have kids. I know you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
