The radio station studio is closed.  do what you can to be a part, be apart.

new installments of the coronus diary in part two & part three featuring the music of prince (nothing by download.png) and weirdly a sidetrack into early rupert holmes,  and recordings of boiling pasta, some hallmarks of spring, projects done with existing materials (not going out to consume), and birds.
