klokwkdog: Hemlock -- seemed to me that the Brits usually went for blues or classical, and they had the chops and listening experience to do a half-decent job

klokwkdog: don't even need LJ; some pretty interesting stuff goes by on the more mainstream Morning Becomes Eclectic
Dexter Fong: He shot herself
klokwkdog: this is a post-deconstruction of Nick D the way "By the Silvery" is a pre-deconstruction of Giant Rat
principalpoop: your bluffing flatfoot. oops I guess you weren't
Dexter Fong: klok: I knew you were gonna say that
Hemlock Stones: theres a lot of good stuff on radio three klok but it tends to be compartmentalised whereas LJ opens it all up in one show
