Greetings radioShirleyphiles and welcome to another 45 minutes of aural hijinx!
As the previous show was all about being struck mute and rather mental in the instrumental department, I decided to un-gag the manservant (despite his protestations to the contrary) and request … no … demand … that he get working on a show that was the polar opposite. Yes. I want talk. Yes. I want to hear words. Yes. I want to delight in the jeux avec la langue that some of the more intrepid daredevils of the musical and poetry world have gifted us. Oh, don’t worry. Don’t worry. Don’t worry as Yoko shrieks. This episode is no unrelenting highbrow literary POESIA SONORA that will have you chewing your tongue off and throwing it to the dogs of onomatopoeia. Especially when there are the likes of radioShirl’s favourite local nautical naughties like THE GOOD SHIP thrown into the aural soup just to bring it down and pepper it up to your taste.
So Shirleyphiles, its time to lubricate your collective glotti, and practice your best mannered Laurie Anderson “Are you talking to me or are you just practicing for one of those performances of yours?” vocal stylings with a toothbrush in hand while Laurie, Patti, Yoko, Gertrude, Lucky, Brian, Diane, Hank, Morphine, Andy, the fabulous Wierdos and a cast of many throw a hatful of syllables into your ear canals!
Until next time, take care and play fair!
radioShirl and mr.Kenneth
