For September 13, 2007. Twenty years ago today, the Tifton City Hall and Myon Complex was dedicated in the town of Tifton, Georgia.  It wasn't a new building, but a renovation and restoration of a famous old one. I talk about the re-development of the Myon, as well as my own fascination with old buildings.

McMenamins has an extensive set of websites, which include pictures of many of their historic properties.  Well worth a look -- and a visit, if you're in the neighborhood!

Today's episode music is from 'Fallen Angel,' by DJ Topshelf.  Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.

Episode #88 -- Richard Raymond Valley For September 7, 2007. This episode is a highly personal one for me, marking 20 years since the death of my grandfather, Richard Raymond Valley.  I share several memories of my grampa, and I hope I can convey to you what made him such a special person.

If you can't remember, or never saw, the video for 'Saved By Zero,' you can see it here, on YouTube.

Today's episode music is from 'October,' by the Scottish Guitar Quartet.  Our theme music was composed and performed by Marc Rose.

Episode #87 -- Richard Marquand For September 4, 2007.  Twenty years ago today, film director Richard Marquand died at the age of 49.  He will probably best be remembered as the director of 'Return of the Jedi' in 1983.  I talk about the state of 'Star Wars,' how it's changed over the past twenty years, and what I think about the Special Editions and prequel movies.

Today's episode music is from 'Duel Key Dreamer,' by Father Rock.  Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.

Friday, December 7, 2007.  Twenty years ago today, PSA Flight 1771 crashed, killing everyone aboard, in what was not an accident but one of the worst incidents of workplace homicide in American history.  I share some details of the crash and how it happened, along with a discussion of the origins of a phrase which didn't yet exist in 1987 but is now commonly used to describe such incidents.

Today's episode music is 'Terraform,' by Aged Machine.  Our theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
