I had heard of it a while ago, but didn’t actually start listening to it until recently. It is a local news program about, in the words of its host, Cecil Baldwin, “A friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep.” It is the sort of thing I wish I had written and it may, in fact, have been stolen from my brain, like most good things.
I highly recommend that you subscribe with your favorite listening software.
Also, be nice to the faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home. You can’t see her, but she is your friend.
