Cabinet of Curiosities Show 63 – Covers: Origins

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…….

Covers: Origins

Once more we boldly go where other radio shows quite sensibly refuse to go – on the grounds of musical taste………. 
*Please note this show contains virtually no origins whatsoever, we just like it as a title!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 62 – Days of Future Past


“It is said that your life flashes before your eyes just before you die. That is true, it’s called Life.”

― Terry Pratchett, The Last Continent

Our Present is rarely where we really want to be. 

We’re either reminiscing our past,
or planning – or daydreaming – or worrying – about our future.

So this is songs about wishing we could go back to the past – or what we hope/dread for the future!

Join us as we try to figure out if Nostalgia really IS what it used to be…..

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 61 – Elemental, my Dear Cabinet…..


All irregularities will be handled by the forces controlling each dimension. Transuranic heavy elements may not be used where there is life. Medium atomic weights are available: Gold, Lead, Copper, Jet, Diamond, Radium, Sapphire, Silver and Steel. Sapphire and Steel have been assigned.

At the time of writing, the Periodic table has 118 elements.   
Surely in all that lot, we can come up with some songs that cover them – 
extra points if you can shoehorn Barium in….

Join us for some scientific mayhem

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 60 – Manflu!!

Here we are in the 2nd week of January,
the traditional season for coughs, colds, sneezles, weasles,
and the symptom that you just googled that now has you convinced that you have explosive leprosy
with a side order of botulism……

Just for you, we have a show full of songs about illness,
and songs about cures…….
Grab your box of mansize (but softened with aloe vera for your tiny wee nosy) tissues, 
your citrus flavoured paracetamol laced hot drink, 
and your list of possible diseases from webmd.com 
and join us for a traipse through the musical GP waiting room
