That's how I feel all the time 

Between sessions of my night class (we take a break, during which I retreat to the office to take a belt of Isle of Jura check email) I flip on the webcast of Hewitt. Mitch? Check. Sounds like Elder, OK. And that must be Podhoertz. And then you hear Lileks, who later says some really nice things about the show and a really important thing about Hollywood. He's right about the hand signals, and about the post-show thrill.
Afterwards I walked out into the first pure perfect spring evening we�ve had this year, jumped in the car and slid a CD in the slot. Windows down, music loud, 75 MPH, heading home, thinking the same old thoughts you always get after a radio show.

Now a burger. And a beer.

I had a longer drive, of course, and veg-head that I am the burger is made of rice and mushroom and because church council was still to come no beer. But ah, the night and the music! It is, of course, the first album I played at KSPC in 1980. "Revolt into Style", Mitch -- this here is bumper music!

I've figured out the radio experience by way of Steven Wright:

You know when you're rocking in a rocking chair, and you go so far that you almost fall over backwards, but at the last instant you catch yourself?
