April 19, 1995
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 28 years this week. The news that April morning spread very quickly. This was before the age of social media; Facebook and Twitter were still a decade away. Every TV and radio in the office was tuned to the news. There had been a massive explosion in Oklahoma City. Then came the pictures of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The utter shock of it all brought our small office to a standstill. I still remember those first few hours of devastation and panic and the days of desperation, questions, and disbelief that followed. It’s something we, unfortunately, experienced again a few years later on a bright September morning.
We remember 168 of our family, friends, and neighbors this Wednesday. We recognize the first responders and volunteers who worked days to rescue and recover the fallen. And we thank all the good people at the Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum who keep this memory alive.
This week will be much like the last. Doing some research for the next podcast episode. Unfortunately, the recording of said episode, might be delayed. I’m still recovering from a cough. My voice is weak and rough right now. Please follow us on Mastodon for updates.
More later. Time to remember.

Something To Watch
This past week it was time for music from other sources. It's always nice to listen to Radio Paradise and Indie Pop Rocks on soma fm. AndLofi Girl launched a brand new stream on YouTube, synthwave radio - beats to chill/game to.
I still listening to Titan by John Varley on Audible.
Have a great week.
