I've been thinking about Boo Radley some. He is the real hero of the story. He is the saviour of the children. He saves them from the evils of Bob Yule that drunken monster. Atticus was okay but now we now his true racist leanings he has fallen from hero worship and is just as lousy as the rest of em. Boo (Arthur) is the real deal. This episode is for Boo.
Returned from a month wondering and weeping across the cold world so wild. The world of freight trains, deep woods, monsters of the moon, crashing waves, MJ lookalikes and dreams transform to nightmares. Americana continues to eat itself.

We have the sounds from down the west coast. One of the greatest compositions of our time to go with with minds eye montage of Redford, Newman and Ross robbing banks across the Bolivian landscape. THIS is the get away we dreamed of! We have the howls of a sermon led by the Reverend J M Gates down in Georgia, the kazoo buzz of the Memphis Jug band and a graveyard story from (another hero) the Human Skab. Theres this unsettling song by a guy on the Santa Monica Pier drowning in his own disillusioned romanticism. Maybe he arrived in Hollywood with this song back in the 90s planning to make it big. Seems he was destined for tourist hot spot entertainment. But he really means these words.
LEST WE FORGET THE MORAL FABLE OF THE ROCHES. No one should ever go to Hammond. Theres a Hammond in Indiana I could get to from Glasgow in 9 hours if I left right now, not bad. Another one in Louisiana. But doesn't matter cause I'm staying in school. 'tell me I'm okay'
At the end you can hear the story of Paul Bunyan the giant too, whom was the coolest giant I've ever met. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Bunyan

Borders delineate what lies within and what lies without - between national territories, communities, political beliefs and technological approaches. But how does the Internet and its promise of connecting the world change how we understand borders, territories and lines of demarcation, both online and off?
This episode will explore how borders can be transcended online or whether they can reassert their political poignancy even online. We will look at the ways technology both empowers and controls refugees, how Iran and China have attempted to create national online networks and limit access to foreign information, how data is shared around the world, and what happens when the borders between online technologies and offline society blur until they merge together.
We will look at refugees, surveillance, censorship, intelligence sharing, internet of things and domestic abuse, crossing a number of borders in only two hours
“its a turn down day…. and i DIG IT�
Blazing sunshine, groovy vibes, wholesome smiles and happy faces.
Sunshine pop is indeed that most unfashionable of musical genres. Deliberate edgeless and unpolitical in a time of riotous political, social and cultural upheaval - it is the squeaky clean sound of middle class American teenagers, basking in the wealth of the second wave of US consumer affluence.
There are no troubling epochal political concerns to bother these wholesome combos. Vietnam? Protesting racial equality? psychedelia, drug use, filthy rock music and “dropping out�?? Hey, don’t bum us out man! (and its is largely men).
Nothing but lazy summer romances (heterosexual, OBVS), innocent yet serious romantic infatuations (you can discern this by the degree to which the music references classical music phrasings - grown up!) and the narrow preoccupations of wistful pseudo-hippie youths. These kids are NEAT-niks, not Beatniks.
However, these 40-50 year old curious have an undeniable, irresistible charm. It is incredibly sweet and optimistic music, the sounds of a generation without cares. The melodies alone are frustratingly catchy, and the song-writing skill of soft rock legends like Paul Williams, Roger Nichols, Kurt Boetcher and Jimmy Webb are some of the finest of the era.
In this heat why not lose yourself in a lost world of naive, up-beat song-craft.
