There are pockets of insane sanity in Utah – some of them are served by KRCL. I ran across the station one sleepless night on a trip “home” to Utah, at a pre-David time of my life when I’d end up sleeping in my old room at Mom’s house. There was usually a moment (usually late at night) when I’d start scanning for a radio station that sounded like it wasn’t based in Utah (translation: liberal politics, flexible musical format). And so I found KRCL, which intrigued me. It’s typical for a small :NPR station in the mountain states – underfunded, but passionate. Another such is the excellent little station in Carbondale, CO – KDNKwhich also has an Intenet streaming feed. And then there’s my all-time favorite public radio station in Colorado, KUNC – and they also have a feed, too. Yay!
And now the KRCL website has led me to check out WinAmp at last. I know nothing about what I’m doing with it, but it’s sure cool to play with. Shame I can’t use it on the work computer (no downloads allowed).

Good doG. I’m IMing with my sister, blogging, and watching the pilot episode of Futurama on something called SaltWaterChimp.com. Next up: Monty Python. After that: the first episode of Cowboy Bebop, in Japanese with English subtitles.
I will never be able to explain this to my mom.
