Our apologies. We are aware that the third hour of The Midnight Special followed the first hour, and that 20 minutes of the second hour were never heard. This was caused by a glitch in the computer that operates WFMT. We did pick up the second hour 20 minutes in and then broadcast the third hour in its entirely. It should be complete and in the proper order on our Internet archive. (Which hopefully will be the current program, unlike last week.) I will include the sequence that was missed on the September 15 show in the September 22 program. Rich
