Updated radio page for 36th and final show of the year, wow, another year traveled through alright . . . Cenacle 97 done & out, but for archiving to come later on . . . working on new issue, getting there too . . . might be last post of the year . . . Trump was the worst of it, and he hasn't even gotten started . . . but grateful for health, home, job, and that there are a lot of good people out there, to be found sometimes, to just be learned of from a distance others . . . blessed be to all . . .
