Welcome friends, to the Extra Extra Radio Show, episode 3, with Michael as your host, guide, and reliable adult-in-the-room. Exploring different aspects of life in The City and meeting some of the people who make it one of the world’s most unique urban environments.
Meet the two park keepers, Tracy and Sandy, travelling in their official maintenance truck as they make their daily rounds of the park. We also encounter the Park’s latest Director of ***, Formidabla, and the newly appointed Director of Language, Paraprosdokian. Atmospheric musicscapes with titles such as ‘Tiny Human Figurines Made From Sand. If You Held These To Your Ear, You Heard Soft Sweet Music’ and ‘Taurus – The Voluptuary’ pull you into this park of the flesh.
In the second episode of this season, our host speaks to the defining voices of the city’s nightlife, whilst the music alternates between thumping beats and mesmerising soundscapes from brand-new genres. All is centred around Hive, a 160-floor club with its own masseuse community, Italianate basilica and arable farmland.
Lampooning a traditional radio show, a late night DJ arouses his listeners in an undefined city – think talk radio, jingles and enticing commercials, interweaved with ambient soundscapes. The show, written by Dan Fox and Michael Portnoy, is in close collaboration with Loes Verstappen, who selected the music for this show. Tune in and listen to the stories of phone-in callers sharing their specialist fetishes, studio guests recounting unexpected experiences of the city, yoga exercises, a weather forecast and pillow talk, no touching permitted.
