A rather fun take on modernism from Will Self, broadcast earlier this year. I’d happily listen to a whole series of programmes arranged like this, different voices drifting in and out, new juxtapositions and comparisons made between decades, personalities, media. While the initial set-up is a little hokey, the execution of the idea is excellent. Well worth a listen. You can also download it here.
I’m commenting on everything if you haven’t noticed. I took the day off to decompress, so I’m working my way through everything I missed online. I’m taking tomorrow off to work my way through everything I missed in the real world! I need to shop for oatmeal! But online is way more important.
Thank you for the Will Self download. He is always good for a laugh. I downloaded the mp3, which I’ll listen to on my next trip to the gym.
