Cabinet of Curiosities – Show 31 – Fools and Sages #xmcab

“We’re all fools,” said Clemens, “all the time. It’s just we’re a different kind each day. We think, I’m not a fool today. I’ve learned my lesson. I was a fool yesterday but not this morning. Then tomorrow we find out that, yes, we were a fool today too. I think the only way we can grow and get on in this world is to accept the fact we’re not perfect and live accordingly.”
— Ray Bradbury (The Illustrated Man)
In honour of April, come join us for a journey on what fools we mortals be – with a little good advice thrown in for us to ignore!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 4th April, you’d be a Fool to miss it

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 29 – All Request Special

No music is so charming to my ear as the requests of my friends, and the supplications of those in want of my assistance.
Julius Caesar

Yes it’s that time again – 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.

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 28 – Curious Cinema

“Cinema is the most beautiful fraud in the world.” 
Jean-Luc Godard

Music from the Movies – but the curious kind.

You may well think that your heart will go on – but it hardly seems necessary to wail about it for 5 minutes.

Oh and there was *totally* room for Jack on that door.

Grab your hot dog and your popcorn and don’t forget to supersize that drink so you need to go for a wee half way through!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 7th March, for some movie musical madness!

Cabinet of Curiosities Show 27 – Poetry and Poppycock

“Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more.
Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea, and one on shore,
To one thing constant never.
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into hey nonny, nonny. ”
― William ShakespeareMuch Ado About Nothing

No matter how good the songwriter, sometimes they run out of words. Some look to poetry to fill in the gaps. Others just stick to going La La La La La.

Even Shakespeare occasionally resorted to a bit of “Hey Nonny Nonny”

We have carefully curated some of the most amazing poetry/pop hybrids we could obtain for your listening pleasure.

We have also carefully curated some of the most heinous….. you have been warned!

In between, kick back and relax with some classic La La La songs!

Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 28th February on Mad Wasp Radio!
