Cabinet of Curiosities Show 100 -St. Valentine’s Massacre III – Revenge of the inability to come up with a witty sequel name

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

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 99 – Adversion!

“Advertising is legalized lying.”
— H.G. Wells

As inspired by Neil Miles’ YouTube Channel

A show dedicated to all those lovely tunes
that advertising stole from us,
replacing the words with carefully crafted earwormy rhymes
destined to stick in our heads
until the end of time.

Will it be chips or jacket spuds? Will it be salad or frozen peas?
Will it be mushrooms? Fried onion rings?
You’ll have to wait and see…
Join us between 8-10, Wednesday 29th January

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 98 – Inappropriate II

There are many many tracks out there that frankly probably should never be played.

Sometimes, it’s just how things were at the time.
Sometimes, the artists really should have known better

If there isn’t at least one song in this show that you find offensive – or at the very least distasteful -then we’re doing it wrong!

From Sexual Overshare to Sexism
From Dirty Old Men to Discrimination
If there’s a song about it, we’ve tried to represent it here!

Join us for some tutting, eye rolling and good old fashioned outrage!

from 8-10, 
Wednesday 22nd January
only on Mad Wasp Radio!

Guaranteed to trigger

melt your inner snowflake*

*guarantee may not be valid, songs may not be that bad, we promise nothing!
