The Walter Benjamin Show

Today is Wednesday, 14 November 2007.

While the scripts of Lost in Space went downhill very quickly (I blame the change from black-and-white to colour), for those of us, of the 60s Generation, it was great fun while it lasted.

With which character did you identify?

Dr. Smith here.

And, Synchronicity: by accident, I just discovered that, on this date in 1971, Mariner 9 arrived at Mars, and became the first human spacecraft to orbit another planet.

So, let's cut to The Police:

Most excellent: A Friend of MoB just sent this Neil Young classic covered by the Cowboy Junkies. Word on the street is that this song, as sung by Neil, was featured on the famous "Lost Episode" of Lost in Space, the one which was meant to be aired before the penultimate episode titled (And I Kid You Not), "The Great Vegetable Rebellion":

And welcome. You're listening to "Notes After Nine", here on radio LEFT, comin' at ya from Moscow on the Arkansas, and simulcast from Del Rio, Texas, where the hits just keep on comin', and the old turntable is spinnin' a Golden Oldie from The Mike Curb Congregation, from JD DJ HH's fav Donald Sutherland-Clint Eastwood-Telly Savalas flick, Kelly's Heroes:

And, for those of us of a certain tender age, who can forget, the immortal Mantovani and His Orchestra, playing "Misty" for YOU:

And, while I don't want to bring you down and break your groove, even JD DJ HH has got to pay the bills to The Man:

And here's a message from your local Depairtment of Impossible Defense, and remember to wear a white blouse or shirt to reflect atomic radiation:

I see by the old sundial on the studio wall that we have time to spin one more platter before the warden pulls the plug, so let's drop that needle in the Same Old Place:

If you've enjoyed tonight's programming, want to settle an old score with parents, siblings, or anyone else who failed you, or have a Message From Mars of Vital Importance for All Humanity, you can write us at Box 666, General Post Office, New York, New York 10001. All entries MUST be postmarked, unless you live in an interesting place, and can provide transportation, plus room and board, in which case I'll be glad to deliver it personally. All offers invalid except where prohibited by law.

And now, the Canadian national anthem:

Signing off for all of us here at Rebel Indie Pirate Radio Station and Soup Kitchen LEFT: Good night, and good luck.

What a lot of fun! Thanx HH!
This has put me in the mood to go out and buy some dangerous toys, but I'm not sure why. :)
