Cabinet of Curiosities Show 81 – Name Dropping

“You and your name-dropping. ‘I knew Michael’. ‘I knew Sammael’. ‘The angel Gabriel did my hair’. It’s like I’m with the Band with biblical figures.” 
— Cassandra Clare (City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4))

I’m a friend of Stevie Wonder
I’m a friend of Eric Fromm
I’m a friend of Bryan Ferry
I’m a friend of Terence Stamp …….

……unless they’re looking for someone to pick up the bar tab!

So many songs mention famous people…….
My very good showbiz pals, Spray, have also contributed a track
I’ve met them you know!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 24th July

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 80 – 2nd Anniversary Special!!

“I mean, what is an un-birthday present?”
A present given when it isn’t your birthday, of course.”
Alice considered a little. “I like birthday presents best,” she said at last.
You don’t know what you’re talking about!” cried Humpty Dumpty.

“How many days are there in a year?”
Three hundred and sixty-five,” said Alice.
And how many birthdays have you?”
— Lewis Carroll

Difficult as it may be to believe, Cabinet 80 is also our 2nd Birthday!

We’re officially a toddler

There will be tantrums

There will be eating of inappropriate objects

There will be writing on the walls in crayon

So…..basically a typical Wednesday then!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 17th July
for some Anniversary Anarchy

Fancy dress is optional, but please do wear some clothes

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 79 – Covers VI – 2 Crap, 2 Spurious

“People take on the shapes of the songs and the stories that surround them, especially if they don’t have their own song.” 

— Neil Gaiman (Anansi Boys)

I can’t believe this is the sixth covers show and we’re still not even close to running out of auditory atrocities to dismay and disenchant!

I do love a good cover…..

But I love a bad cover even more!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 3rd of July,

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 78 – War and Peace

“It was much better to imagine men in some smoky room somewhere, made mad and cynical by privilege and power, plotting over brandy. You had to cling to this sort of image, because if you didn’t then you might have to face the fact that bad things happened because ordinary people, the kind who brushed the dog and told the children bed time stories, were capable of then going out and doing horrible things to other ordinary people.
― Terry Pratchett, Jingo

War, hunh

What is it good for?
Absolutely noth…..
Oh wait….

Sadly, war has done more to advance science, medicine and technology than anything else in human history.
Which probably tells you everything you need to know
about humans.

It’s also generated a LOT of music

Peace, hunh

Mostly music about how nice it would be if we HAD some…….

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 26th of June, 
for some movie musical madness!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 77 – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Lovers, to bed – ’tis almost fairy time…….

The Summer solstice is nearly here,
The shortest night of all the year
I really didn’t mean to rhyme
Tho’ Shakespeare does it all the time
Songs of Summer, Songs of Dreams
Songs of Fairy Kings and Queens
If curious music is your delight
Then listen in on Wednesday Night

from 8-10, Wednesday 19th June
only on Mad Wasp Radio*!

*can anyone think of a rhyme for wasp?
