How I Discovered KNYO & How It Discovered Me

KNYO Radio Station, Ft. Bragg

Reading Tom Cahill’s latest post to the Anderson Valley Advertiser (AVA), I came across another post that mentioned KNYO. So I checked out their web page, and decided to listen. Lo and behold, Thom Hartmann was on the air!

This is funny, because these past two months I’ve gotten into the habit of listening to him via Youtube. But YT’s streaming videos are often choppy and freeze up. But KNYO doesn’t have that problem!

Excellent! Especially on those nights you have insomnia; you can even call in! Lucky for me (since I can’t do streaming from home), he saves them as podcasts. Downloading last night’s show right now, will listen tonight.

His page also provides other downloads that do not appear on the show. I’ll probably make this a habit, as there’s nothing much to listen to on the SF airwaves, any more..Clear Channel ruined that, because those shows weren’t big money makers:

{{ Hey, Marco! A mutual friend of ours, Eleanor Cooney, said you have quite an eclectic, all night radio show. I live in SF, but enjoy reading the Anderson Valley Advertiser. Someone mentioned KNYO, so I checked it out, and told Eleanor I’m now listening to that station; and that’s when she brought up your name. So I will download last night’s podcast and listen to it this evening…since I don’t have Internet from home, due to my low income. Like Eleanor, I am also an author, and have many fun tales on my website and blog. Though they may not be your cup of tea, they are all gay themed. But unlike any gay stories you’ve ever seen! Here’s a short piece for you to check out, when/if you have the time: https://zekeblog.wordpress.com/2015/07/31/misfortune-is-a-cookie-named-zeke/ }}

Let’s see if or how soon he replies!

Thank you for commenting on my weblog. I hope it’s okay for me to occasionally read at random from your work (book, etc.) on my radio show; I’ll be doing that unless you tell me not to. Also you can choose what I read aloud, by just pasting it as plain text in the body of an email, and I’ll be sure to read that. If there are swears, that’s fine, but I’ll wait till after 10pm to read it, to avoid agitating the weasels.

Every once in awhile I’m passing through Mendocino during normal people’s waking hours and I stop by Eleanor (Cooney)’s and Mitch’s place to visit. Any friend of theirs is a friend of mine.

Again, hi and thanks.

You have my permission to read /any/ of my works w/o asking beforehand. I will soon come up with a list of my best tales (outside of my book), to make things easier. Something I’ve been planning to do for awhile, now…as my blog grows and they get buried in the past.

WOW, thank you Marco! My mind is blown, by your offer. I’m sure anyone who is not a homophobe will gain much delight in listening to my weird, gay tales. Since I do not have Internet at home, my only request is that you let me know when you’ve you’ve read one of my pieces, that I may download the podcast.

Tom Cahill is also a friend.

I’m sure you know him. I first had the honor to meet him, when he swooped down from up north, to support me for supporting Nam Vet Randolph Taylor, whose face appears on the cover of my novel. Tom’s not a close friend, as he tends to bounce around the world. But we’ve resumed contact several weeks ago and, as you probably know, he is now in a retirement home in Cluny, France. He has sent me some of his recent chapters of his autobiography in progress, along with posts from his mailing list.

Tom supported Randolph’s 1984 fast on behalf of Vietnam Veterans, by fasting himself! This was before we met, or we even knew about each other. When Randolph ended his 40-day fast, Tom continued his own fast, but changed its cause to prison rape. You may view a page on my web site, dedicated to Mr. Cahill, here:

http://www.gay-bible.org/other/cahill.htm

I’ve resumed reading the AVA, this time online, because of Tom’s posts there. But I also fell in love with Mendocino once more, as a result. I have read some of your pieces, as I searched for “Tom Cahill.” Not realizing, then, of your friendly association with Eleanor and Mitch…two excellent people, I agree.

Presently listening to your show from last night…your mom’s poem is eloquent and frightening! As was the essay, Tertullian, which I previously read on the AVA. Then a scathing critique of Hospitality House. Now, I’m hearing about Donald Trump’s possible clinical dementia/syphillis…no surprise here. You read well, excellent radio voice. I now read the AVA several times per week. Looking forward to your letters there.

– Zeke

Sounds like fun to me, Marco. I have a land line only…but that’s best for call-ins, anyway. I have an LD service that only charges me a penny a minute. I presume I dial your number, whatever that is. But just in case it’s the other way around, here’s mine: 415-863-3790.

{{ Kewl!! }}

With a capital K. Mr. McClean posted his offer via my web page’s “contact” form…which tells me he perused my web site before sending off his letter. What’s so neat about his show, is it’s livestreamed, so my stories will garner a much larger audience than just from your neck of the woods.

I’m listening to his radio show from last night, right now…he’s reading someone’s piece from the AVA about the homeless in Ft. Bragg. Scathing critique on an institution there called Hospitality House…abusing the homeless, etc. Before that, he read a brilliant essay called “Tertullian,” which I also read about a week ago in the AVA. It sent chills up my spine…did you come across it yourself?

He likes to play yodeling music, I see! Searched his name on the AVA, and realized I’ve already read some of Marcos’ contributions there, including a piece posted just above one by Tom Cahill! I bet they know each other. I’ll let him know that Tome gave me incridible support for my own efforts to help Nam Vet Randolph Taylor, who is also the main hero in my novel, that he’s going to read to his audience.

Hmm…you discovered this author on Alternet more than a decade ago, Tom Cahill swooped down from 10 Mile to honor me re. Randolph, Anthony Serra, a friendly neighbor in my building moved up to Mendocino (where I visited him once), and now Marco wants to read my talesl!

Something about Mendocino: maybe you’re all a cabal of white witches.

Mendocino seems to harbor quite a grand collection of angels.

He must have a sharp nose for sniffing out hidden gold. :D

Did you have something to do with this…calling each other up, and creating this scenario to surprise me? At any rate, you better be listening to that show when I’m on the air, or I’ll cut you out of my Misfortune Cookie(tm) franchise! If by some strange chance you bump into Anthony Senna, tell him to tune in, too! He remembers me as Gene Catalano, the one who painted “Unicorn w/o a Horn.”

This is getting silly.

    Dude, what the hell is up with that Angle of Death vs. Alice In Wonderland statue? I frequently wonder that.
