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.

The show is written by Dan Fox and Michael Portnoy, in close collaboration with Loes Verstappen, who selected the music for this show, and Monte Masi. Voice acting by Thomas Dudkiewicz, Dan Fox, Michael Portnoy and Loveday Smith. Drawings by Fiona Lutjenhuis.
