Yeah it's safe to say that.

This is great. I haven't seen the video of this yet, but I think I'm enjoying just the audio more.
  10:14am Brendan:

If we can just fin a weakness in the Trump Death Star. Wait! Its his mouth! Whenever he opens his mouth he gets weaker! It seems to be some sort of sewage discharge portal .

Be sure to check out the video of the Darth Trump, it's even funnier than just the audio.

Hey Ken and gang - great Cale cut!
  10:20am Listener Robert:

I don't know about crashing, but approximately since Audience Engine debuted, seems to me it's taking longer for DJs to get their playlist page online. Or if not taking longer, at least appearing later.

Yes, we're still ironing out a lot of the bugs on the new website.. a few of them will be fixed later today or tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34am Marcel M:

I love the story of the recording of Like A Rolling Stone. The organ player just happened to slip in and the producer wanted him to leave but Dylan was like, nah nah he can stay. And its hard to imagine the studio version without the organ now.
Avatar 10:34am V Priceless:

...but as long as the music works, the rest, I'm sure, we can all roll with!

Thank you Mary~!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53am Bronwyn Bishop:

Always nice to hear the Bongo Band's version of Apache by itself rather than just a song that sampled it. Also nice to hear Jeffrey Lewis, John Cale, and Dylan within an hour of each other.
Avatar 10:58am Dan B From Upstate:

Did you do it, Ken? Did you break the site? It stopped working here for a little bit.

Avatar 12:30pm Jeff:

Not that anyone was probably actually wondering, but the reason I started talking about Oldsmobiles for absolutely no damn reason is that this morning when I woke up I blearily jut hit "play" on the remote control for the audio streamy player, and didn't realize until much later that it had been paused on a Ken archive from last month - where that Oldsmobile industrial song "Talk About a Rocket" was played - instead of the live stream. I mean, it definitely sounded like a Ken show when I expected a Ken show, so nothing made me look at the display...
