"Unreality Check" January 27, 2017

(Week 453)

This RADIOLA! doesn't believe its own eyes--by decree.

Recent RADIOLA! programs may be streamed here at your convenience. Your facts are as good as mine-cast here. Each RADIOLA! program is sent to subscribers on my mailing list (email here).

RADIOLA! is brought to you sporadically by (and in spite of) The Syncopated Times. Please consider subscribing. My (not disinterested) opinion is that it's a delightful paper.

Andy, it's great to finally get a new show from you! I hope you get back to producing them on a regular basis. It was also fun to hear you dancing around this "good cause" benefit cd you mentioned.... I still have no idea what it benefits but I think I can guess.... hope you're well. Thanks for the music as always! B
