Three Cheers for William F. Buckley, Jr!

With apologies.  In my other life, I’m a historian and biographer.  That is, when I’m not reviewing prog (I’m always listening!).  I came across this exchange from September, 1955, and it made my heart smile.

Russell Kirk: “Nor do I own a radio, or any such contraption of the devil.”

William F. Buckley’s response: “To face life without a good high fidelity phonograph is to be doctrinaire about the industrial revolution, which is something we conservatives don’t, if you will remember, approve of being about ANYTHING.”

Thank you, Mr. Buckley.
