Last night of 2022. Good year or good riddance? You're the judge...

It was better than 2020, in that children are no longer dying of COVID in hospitals. Generally. The vaccines have much reduced severity. A silver lining.

Great point, Benoît. Happy New Year!

They let you in the building? What were they thinking? ;)

6:27 PM, December 31st, 2022
H.N.Y. also, Steve! Thinking back some more on 2022, live music shows have slowly restarted. Sure, possible COVIDisation, but it sure is sometimes* nice! *Some remain all too effing loud for me. The Bronson Centre. Even with ear plugs... But the again there's the SAW Centre...

The worst part of 2022 (outside covid), is arguably Putin's war on Ukraine. No jokes about that.

6:31 PM, December 31st, 2022
Heavy Ben, they know where he lives...

Heavy Ben, technically they didn't let me in... they were supposed to... didn't show, found an open door a building over, got me into the tunnel... fourt door I tried opened into a stairwell up into the Unicentre

Awful! That was my nightmare going to the station this week... being stuck outside with a bag of records 10 minutes before air time and Carelton security no show. Good on you for finding the secret passage...

Thought that sounded like Chrome but don't remember hearing this song before but it could also just my memory

7:10 PM, December 31st, 2022
Steve Kirkland (host)
Memory is a fickle thing, Wally, a reality we both share. Radio is a powerful stimulus, useful for triggering memories... or making them

7:23 PM, December 31st, 2022
Maybe there's a worm in my brain :)

7:43 PM, December 31st, 2022
Steve Kirkland (host)
Let's hope not!
