Well, yuck.

Have to stick close to home and the phone, so I flipped on the teevee. History channel is commemorating Memorial Day with a Pawn Stars marathon, which runs a close second to MSNBC's abdication to its prison obsession. Wish I could get radio reception.

1. Stream live radio!!

Most NPR stations are streamable... my husband is always turning on a jazz station from Hawaii. Lots of amazing stuff out there.

9. One word

Pandora.com

And there's oldradioworld.com for the classic radio shows of the 30's and 40's.

2. I love net radio

I'm listening to an Irish station right now.

If you get Logo, there's a Drag Race marathon. You'll miss the first episode, but it just got better and better this year. Pretty faces and beaded lashes are no longer enough to win.

I'm streaming Randi Rhodes out of Phoenix as I write this.

4. Watch Sherlock on PBS.org --

It's my latest obsession. If you like British productions, and haven't seen it, give I a shot.

14. I was blown away by last year's shows, but this year they

outdid themselves. I watched Season One again, and it paled by comparison.

DO give it a shot -- hope you like it!

As I said, it's my current obsession!!!!!

PS -- Keeping you all in my thoughts as D-Day nears.

18. I assume you mean June 5th, election day in Wisconsin, not 6/4/44.

 

I'm not THAT damn old.

8. Hey, gate!

I really don't care for the new Sherlock, but do like the old one; glad its still on. PBS here has an Inspector Lewis mystery on here now.

15. You mean the old, old one? From when?

Sorry you don't like the new one -- I get so much enjoyment out of watching it -- I assume everybody feels the same as I do!

But I love all (most) British anything, especially Masterpiece.

Tell me about the one you're referring to -- I've become a Sherlock fanatic. (Get a life, gateley.)

7. Try this, it's excellent and free.

 

http://tapin-radio.en.softonic.com/

Totally free, and has thousands of pre-tuned stations.

You can record stations with it as well, to your Hard Drive.

16. Ah, that is frustrating!

I got a new iPad primarily to watch videos and other media -- my laptop just wasn't cutting it. I understand!

Do you have a progressive radio station you can receive? Via the RADIO?

22. Thank you so much for suggesting this to us

I am currently in Nirvana after having taken your advice.

I did have a little bit of trouble at first because the "free" music software download wanted to trick me into also downloading along with it a bunch of offensive and advertising programs from their sponsors, (like for instance having my browser automatically switched to AOL). But it only took me a while to figure out how to re-download the softronic program without all of the "junk" coming along with it. I guess that's what I get for being a cyber amateur.
