Sadness is a radical quantity

So there was a problem with the link for episode #23.
It has now been fixed.

This record has a story.
This woman recorded these songs sometime in the seventies. They sit in a drawer for thirty-some years until her son finds them and puts them out.
They are beautiful. Poetic. Like a lady Leonard Cohen.
Think of all the beautiful things that people make and then stick into drawers or cabinets or suitcases. It makes me happy to think of all that tucked-away beauty.

Episode #23

Photo by Sarah LaPeter

Here's what Sarah told me about this photograph:
"State park, forget name, north of providence in mass. It's a stuffed wolf but looks so alive right. funny story. Set up pic and was waiting for sun to rise and a passing car called the cops cause they thought it was real and going to eat me. cops came and yelled at me. I said I'm sorry I go to art school but they were not amused."

She later added:
"just remembered name of park, purgatory's chiasm, what a name how could I have forgotten"
Kenan and Mikey couldn't make it this week. But no worry, I invited my friend George Langford from Javelin to come and play some of his amazing collection of obscure weirdo music from all over the world. Javelin is an awesome music making Duo, who are formerly of Providence, Rhode Island, currently of New York, New York and imminently dropping a 12" EP on Civil Music (UK) this fall & who if they were to be combined into one person would look like this:

This Week Kenan's busy getting ready to get married (to the beautiful, talented, miss Ro Agents).
