Shows #6 & 7 'Fear Of Ghosts Pts. 1 & 2'

Mix Show #3

Here is a special treat for you all,
2 shows in a row, 6 and 7!

I was especially excited about recording and posting these particular shows, however, unfortunately was quite dismayed by the sound quality of show 6.

So I am apologizing in advance for that.

I suppose I should not be surprised by this happening every once in a while, judging from the means in which I record my shows (via the radio at home). It is a slightly long and boring process that I do not wish to share at present.

All I can say is that I definitely must rectify this before my next season, should that happen.

The second installment, show 7, is just fine though.
I believe I can safely say that I make up for the poor sound quality with part two, not to mention all of the bits of 'The Picture Of Dorian Gray', quite possibly my favourite film now!

"Difference of object does not alter singleness of passion. It merely intensifies it. We can have in life but one great experience at best, and the secret of life is to reproduce that experience as often as possible."

-Oscar Wilde, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' Ch. 17

Show # 4 'Subtle Imperfections Becoming Inconspicuous'

Mix Show # 2

Unfortunately, this is not the original artwork for the cover of this mix.

Normally, with a bit of web-delving, I can usually manage to find the artwork.
Not this time though! And I can not even begin to recall where I found the photo 3 years earlier.
So, I gave you a different work by Bruce Nauman, 'Lip Sync' (1969) which seems to suffice quite fine.
But I'm still upset that I don't have access to the original cover art.
Darn broken down old PC and estranged old friend for whom I made the mix!
