Contemplating the airwaves, the NBA, and what it means to be Welsh at Dylan's

Looking out the window, it was just about dusk, but I wasn't going to rage, rage against the dying of the light. This was my favorite time of day. Dylan Thomas, on the other hand, did eventually drink himself into the light, collapsing at the punk rock Hotel Chelsea in New York.

The Clash came on the Max, but of course not "Janie Jones" or "White Riot," nothing that risky. We're talking "Rock the Casbah." I wanted to go visit Wales someday and made a mental note.

Then I realized that I like the Max and Oldies 1510 for the same reason I hate nationalism. I like variety, diversity, class warfare. OK, maybe not that last part.

"Well, maybe there's a little bit of corgi that I see in her," said the bar lady to my dog, catching her at another angle. I was relieved. I wanted her to be Welsh.
