NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #8o ~ 01-02-16]


pictured: Alex Chilton, c. 1977

If you only knew how much, how very much we wanted this weekend’s post to turn out as we’d intended. It all seemed so simple at the outset: Program a rerun into the past Saturday evening’s time slot —  one chosen from among a few of the episodes that had gone missing over the holiday season. The listener is happy, we have a little time off, so we’re happy. What could go wrong? Plenty, as it transpired. The wrong episode aired on Saturday. (A Xmas episode, no less. See if we do anything remotely theme-oriented ever again. Except Halloween. We’ll always do Halloween.) To which we’ll add, “Mea culpa!” As a party figured into the schedule, along with a shipment of botanical products from South America requiring inspection, a season’s worth of Highway Patrol episodes…you’re probably getting the idea by now. So, without further ado, here’s NCIP 80, which we’d intended that you hear. It’s worth tuning in, which  you can now do directly below….
