Cabinet of Curiosities Show 106 – All Request Special

“Law of Ten: three people will like it unconditionally, three people will hate it unconditionally, and four people will be on the fence about it.”
― Cadillac Jack

Time to play some of the great (and curious) requests I have received for the last few shows, but wasn’t able to fit in.

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 8h April, for the Listener Takeover

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 105 – Cabinet of Obsolete Things

“Adults are just obsolete children and the hell with them.”
— Dr. Seuss

There are so many things that we grew up with that “kids today”
just don’t understand.
Floppy disks, vinyl,
cassettes, telephone boxes,
Getting the engaged tone
People bringing milk to your house in glass bottles.
Going outside…….

Join us for a nostalgic waddle in things we used to know how to use!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 104 – Cabinet of Oirishness

“Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him
through temporary periods of joy.”
— W.B. Yeats

Sure and begorrah, isn’t it the day after St. Patrick’s Day! 
So we’re going to have a Cabinet of Oirishness.
Put on your best green jumper, get yourself a Shamrock Shake,
prepare your party piece and
get ready for some general shenanigans.

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 103 – Cabinet of Springtime!

“Where are the songs of Spring? Aye, where are they?”
― John Keats

The days are starting to get a little longer,
the weather may even be getting warmer (we can hope). 
Snowdrops and daffodils are trying to bloom,
even in the face of storms and floods! 
There’s an awful lot of doom and gloom around
Let’s take a break from it all and relax and enjoy the start of Spring

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 11th March
for some much needed March Mirth, Merriment and Madness

Only on Mad Wasp Radio!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 102 – Bored, Bored, Bored!

“One of the nice thing about Time, Crowley always said, was that it was steadily taking him further away from the fourteenth century, the most bloody boring hundred years on God’s, excuse his French, Earth”
— Terry Pratchett (Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch)

End of February – dull, grey, possibly snowy.
It’s been raining forever!
The whole month is like one long wet Sunday afternoon
in a caravan
in the middle of a field
in rural Wales!

Don’t get me wrong – I love Wales. I also love caravans.
But even the chip shops close on Sundays in Wales…..

But surely boredom is an interesting subject all of its own….?

Well there’s only one way to find out.
Join your host, Xmorpheus
(because names with Xs are cool and interesting)
for a very very boring show indeed.

THIS SHOW CONTAINS NO GENESIS

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 101 – I Protest!

“It’s simply that in every crowd there’s a twerp. All any twerp needs to do is protest loud and long, and he or she will get attention from other twerps who’ll go along for the ride–after all,
if such people didn’t exist, the Ricki Lake Show wouldn’t have an audience.”
— Terry Pratchett

Inspired by TV’s Clangers Expert, Tim Worthington, Cabinet delves into the murky and somewhat insipid waters of the Protest song!

Just Say No to Drugs……
Rap Against Rape…..
Don’t Take Doctor Who off the Air…..

Yes, we have it all – the good, the bad and the just plain weird

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 19th February

Careful now!
