Cabinet of Curiosities Show 54 – Communications Breakdown


“Sometimes I think it is because we remember when we could smoke in pubs, and that we pull our phones out together as once we pulled out our cigarette packets. But probably it’s because we are easily bored.” 
— 
Neil Gaiman (Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances)

Smiles and Speech and Sarcasm 
Smoke signals and Semaphore and Snail mail
Social Media, Antisocial Media, Real News, Fake news
and a bloke down the pub.

It’s all here

So many ways to be misunderstood,
it’s a wonder we ever connect with anyone at all!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 53 – Calendar Days


“The year is round! The wheel of the world must spin! That is why up here they dance the Dark Morris, to balance it. They welcome the winter because of the new summer deep inside it!” 
— 
Terry Pratchett (Wintersmith (Discworld, #35; Tiffany Aching, #3))

Well, here we are in November again….
and I have no idea how that happened
Time is all about perception
Years that take so long, but fly so fast……..

How better to celebrate the passing of time than to pass the time listening to music about time passing?

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 52 – Halloween II


“He heard long ago, in a dream, that one day in every century Death takes on mortal flesh, better to comprehend what the lives she takes must feel like, to taste the bitter tang of mortality: that this is the price she must pay for being the divider of the living from all that has gone before, all that must come after.”

― Neil Gaiman, Season of Mists

Oh how time flies – and it’s time for my favourite day of the year – Halloween.

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 49 – Covers ARMAGEDDON!!!!

“When we die, we will turn into songs, and we will hear each other and remember each other.” 
― Rob Sheffield, Love Is a Mix Tape

Yes, it’s that time again……. we at the Cabinet just can’t get enough of those covers…… just when you thought it was safe to turn the volume back up….. we bring you

You’ll laugh, you’ll gasp, you’ll…. well probably roll your eyes and tut, let’s be honest, but that doesn’t really work well in a show promo……

COVERS ARMAGEDDON!!!!!!

Once more we boldly go where other radio shows quite sensibly refuse to go – on the grounds of musical taste……….
