What is playing at 1052a

What would you expect a marathon of on the classic music station here in Seoul? A Spaghetti Western feast? Well, The Good the Bad and the Ugly soundtrack had been going strong for 45 min or so. Just heard a few from Once Upon a Time in the West. God bless Korea.

South Korean man dies during 49-hour computer game marathon
LAST UPDATE: 8/10/2005 4:29:50 AM

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - For some people, playing video games can be addictive and police in South Korea say that may have cost a man his life.
Police say a 28-year-old man collapsed at an Internet cafe and died after playing the battle simulation game Starcraft non-stop for 49 hours. They say he'd barely eaten anything while he was glued to the keyboard.
Doctors think the man might have had a heart attack.
Police say he was fired from his job last month because he kept missing work to play computer games.

I have a friend in L.A. at the moment whose band Spindrift specializes in Western soundtracks. That's all they do now. Sergio Leone is Kevin's hero. I'm sure you cen get their album. I actually caught them a month ago. Kevin had film a Western that played on the wall as the band rocked their Western ambiance. Very fun,
