I bought a wireless router for $5 and a coax splitter for 10 cents!

Rhapsody Music

Is finally working again on all the PC's I have to deal with.

Some are Server 2003 and they were hit or miss before.   One of the newer releases appears to have fixed it.  

Rhapsody 70's channel and are probably my favorite online music sources and favorite music sources in general.
Satellite radio is next in line.
If I'm forced to listen to broadcast radio (which has gone to hell in a handcart...and no one greased the wheels)...  I listen to WGVX/Y/Z 105.X, KZJK, WLTE, KQRS (but never in the morning).
KQ has some of the best most experienced jocks in town...all been there forever.  One is a great announcer (legendary), but a poor host (in my opinion).  I get enough negativity at work and at home sometimes....don't need to hear it on the air.
I don't want to hear a bunch of talk on my music station anyway.    A few comments are fun, but monologues and "morning teams" are not for me on music stations.  At least Boone and Erickson never sold themselves as a music show.  They were information and entertainment.  And it worked.  It's about the only morning team I can think of that I liked...OH WAIT...There are a few more.   Knapp/Hines and Bush.....and Knapp and Douglas taught me a lot about radio.
Any of those guys and gals back at 78-84 (or so) KS95 were awesome.   Chuck had a good thing going there.   I guess the fracture of pop/AC music in the late 80s killed the format and crippled the station.   Is there even really Adult Contemporary anymore?  I don't even know if Billboard still has that chart any more.
