  • Don't miss Japers' Rink Radio at 10:00 this morning if for no other reason than to see if Pepper does the episode en Francais (details on this week's edition here). And because it's good listenin'. [Japers' Rink Radio (where each show is archived, in case you can't catch it live)]

  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Kent Paynter.
