Greetings radioShirleyphiles and welcome to 40 minutes or so of soporific sounds!
Well this show, which is a headphone privileged aural adventure may not induce sleep as such – at least keep those toothpicks under the eyelids until the very very end if you must – but it is guaranteed to take you down and along some surreal twisting and turning pathways not unlike those experienced when we traverse the landscape of Nod. Choose your footwear weapon of choice ; ruby slippers, bare feet, thigh high leather lovelies, hooves or magic carpet flip flops, the choice is yours.
“He had the face of one who walks in his sleep, and for a wild moment the idea came to me that perhaps he was not normal, not altogether sane. There were people who had trances, I had surely heard of them, and they followed strange laws of which we could know nothing, they obeyed the tangled orders of their own sub-conscious minds.”
― Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca
“What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you dreamed? And what if, in your dream, you went to heaven and plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if, when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge
So Shirleyphiles, its time to wrap your troubles in dreams and drift off into the arms of Morpheus with mr.K & moi. Tagging along for the sleepwalk among a cast of many dropping in from Under Milk Wood, will be the deee-liteful Lady Miss Kier Kirby, the stunning Silver Sircus, mister Ambien himself, Brian Eno, Shirl’s favourite lovers of the underworld, Underground Lovers, the Sonny & Cher of my dreams, Lou & Laurie and simmering away in their dream kitchen, the gone but not forgotten, Frazier Chorus.
Until next time, take care and play fair!
radioShirl and mr.Kenneth
