Cabinet of Curiosities Show 27 – Poetry and Poppycock

“Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more.
Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea, and one on shore,
To one thing constant never.
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into hey nonny, nonny. “
― William ShakespeareMuch Ado About Nothing

No matter how good the songwriter, sometimes they run out of words. Some look to poetry to fill in the gaps. Others just stick to going La La La La La.

Even Shakespeare occasionally resorted to a bit of “Hey Nonny Nonny”

We have carefully curated some of the most amazing poetry/pop hybrids we could obtain for your listening pleasure.

We have also carefully curated some of the most heinous….. you have been warned!

In between, kick back and relax with some classic La La La songs!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 28th February on Mad Wasp Radio!

 

 

 

 

Show 26 back on – new station, new schedule, please read! :)

Well we are surprised and absolutely delighted to announce that we have a new station – and it’s one you will probably be familiar with already – Mad Wasp Radio! 🙂

The lovely people at Mad Wasp have taken us in from the pavement and settled us in with a nice warm schedule position of 8-10pm on Wednesdays.  So that’s an hour later than the show used to start, which I hope works well for everyone – I know it works well for me!

Diamond Lights Express is also moving, so the show rota will stay the same.

We’re very very happy with this move, even if the circumstances were less than ideal – and we look forward to having Wasps in our Cabinet to go with the bees in our bonnets!

Mad I tells ya, MAD!

**Show 26 Cancelled**

St. Valentine’s Day Massacre indeed…..

Unfortunately, this show will not be broadcast as apparently Harvest Moon Radio decided to shut down today due to lack of interest in the owner’s broadcasts.

Sorry, you’re getting as much notice as we got – it was announced on Facebook and the station was off the air before we even got an email.

We hope to be back at some point, when we’ve found a new radio station.
If there is any interest, I can still complete the Valentine’s Day show and upload to Mixcloud.

 

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 26 – St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable.
It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.
You build up all these defences. You build up this whole armour, for years, so nothing can hurt you,
then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…
You give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore.
Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness,
so a simple phrase like “maybe we should just be friends” or “how very perceptive” turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.
It hurts.
Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind.
It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.
Nothing should be able to do that.
Especially not love.
I hate love.”―
Neil GaimanThe Kindly Ones

It’s Hallmark Day and we’re celebrating, Cabinet Style
With a show about the Darker aspects of Love

For added drama, we even got dumped this weekend……

…….and then hooked up with a lovely new radio station!

Don’t say we don’t work at getting exactly the right atmosphere!

(ok we might throw in a couple of mushy love songs, we’re not *completely* immune to lurve..but…)

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 14th February on Mad Wasp Radio!

 

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 25 – Family Ties

“ I do not believe I have ever observed a “functional” family,
families are comprised, in equal measure, of unquestioning and undeserved love
and of unquestioning and cruelly undeserved irritation:
we muddle along as best we can.
And that’s the best that can be said for us.”
― Neil Gaiman

The family that plays together, stays together…… doesn’t it?

Those Gallagher boys might disagree….

This is a show about musical families – siblings, parents and children, spouses, cousins, in laws, out laws…….
