Re: Which radio station do you listen to ?

I personnaly listen to Radio Caroline. It's exactly my state of mind. The perfect radio for me. Even better than the one I work for, which is already very cool indeed.

Re: Was "Laika" the space dog a male or female?

She was a female. Trust me. I met her in 1957 in Leningrad before she became famous.

She told me she would drop me a line someday but since she achieved stardom, she never called me back. Stupid arrogant whore. I deserved better than her anyway.

Unfortunately, it was considered too dark and I had no right to see it again - maybe it is one of the many reasons why I don't have any contact with my family anymore... I saw it r...

Re: Looking for a keyboard; suggestions?

I would say you need a Hammond Organ. And a Fender Rhodes electric piano. A Farfisa too, why not. And a Mellotron 400-D. Not to forget a Hohner Clavinet. An Oberheim, a Fairlight CMI, and let's finish with a Wurlitzer.

With all this you can do the best.
