Over the past year or so I’ve been fascinated with AM radio. I’m addicted to the potent blend of right wing demagogy, pious preachers and conspiracy theorists. (Or my favorite, all of the above.) I think it’s the earnest insanity that gets me.
And then I found tbtl, the show that’s probably too beautiful to live. In a sea of insanity lies one small pocket of…more insanity. But it’s our insanity, and I love them. It’s difficult to describe the show, you simply have to listen. It’s kind of like the Benny Hillifier. Or like “Gardening with Marty Chang“. They would be down with Cuil Theory.
They love anything meta; recursion and self reference are almost daily themes. They like fractals. I would not be surprised if some of them have read G.E.B. If they haven’t, they should. If you haven’t you should.
In order to understand recursion, one must first understand recursion
They have a podcast, and in Seattle you can listen to them at 97.3 KIRO FM between 7 and 10 PM Monday through Saturday. AM’s being deprecated…sigh.
