On the Extra Extra Radio Show we’ve been on a quest to discover what draws people to live in our City, a place shaped by the twin, turbo engines of love and lust. We have learned that love is not a terrified mammal running for dear life, but an intelligent slime mould. Sometimes you just need to stand still and listen as it crawls up your leg.
Our guests happen to be newly single, so drop us a line if one of their voices stirs something within you…
For episode 7, we’ve invited three members of the public to come and tell us about their most memorable romantic encounters in The City. Darrenen, a writer, 7 foot 11, delivers a tell-all account of how he found his alien spouse via a pheromone-based dating app. Renowned leading self-mythologised radical, Cleo hardly needs an introduction. Her politics reverberate through the lakes of ejaculate congealing in the foundations of The City. Have you ever composed an aerobic opera to impress a mysterious woman you once glimpsed while in line at the cinema? Vanessa was born with a debilitating glint of mischief in her eyes. Her tale is one of triumph over perversity.
We thank Darrenen, Vanessa and Cleo. Now, cherished listeners, the lines are open to leave a message for one of our guests, who are all waiting to see if you might be their next most memorable date.
The show is written and performed by Dan Fox and Michael Portnoy in close collaboration with Loes Verstappen who selected the music, and Monte Masi. Voice acting by Dan Fox, Michael Portnoy, Johnny Vivash, Monique Moses and Loveday Smith. Drawings by Fiona Lutjenhuis.
