When I'm at work, I usually wear headphones to cover the distractical general office noise, and I bounce back and forth between WinAmp and my loaded music, and an online feed of a radio station out of KCMO (96.5 the BUZZ) that I really like. The radio station is actually a truly independent station that is commercial and not a public or community station, and they aren't beholden to corporate platylists. They're edgy, indie, and hip, and I really really like that.

Over time, I've gotten to know the various personalities, and the weirdnes sthat has ensued when some of them left. The prime guy used to be Lazlo, but he got offered a better gig at a station out in Seattle, and he vacated for points west. The morning show is done by a woman called Afentra, who was/is romanically attached to Lazlo. She's still doing the morning show, and she's still romanically attached to Lazlo, and there's always been this wonder in the back of my mind as to how they manage that.

Today I found out.

Afentra moved out to Seattle. She does the morning show in Kansas city over the internet in real-time, paired up with a couple of people that are actually in the studio in KC.

I think this is a relatively new (like this week) wrinkle in the whole thing. It's the ultimate telecommuting job, and I think it's cool as hell.

Secondary note: I'm trying the new Yahoo! mail beta. It's a completely new interface which is taking some getting used to, but it seems to be organized a lot better. I think as I get into it more, it will grow on me.
