Thank goodness for radio. The BBC drama I've just heard was so brilliant that it inspired me to revive this undead blog.
Louise Monaghan's one-off play is entitled, The Man Inside the Radio Is My Dad. It is inspired by Storybook Dads - a charity that works to help prisoners stay in contact with their families.
It's funny, touching and uplifting with superb performances by the three female protagonists - Chloe, her mum and her nan. Nan's favourite television programme is called "Pointless". This play for voices is anything but.
So click here. Stop looking. Start listening. (Tip: have a tissue handy.)
Para, jämsides med.
En annan sort.
Bevingaren, 1980: 90
Even a parasite like me should be permitted to feed at the banquet of knowledge
I once posted comments as Bevingaren at guardian.co.uk
Note All parasitoids are parasites, but not all parasites are parasitoids
Parasitoid "A parasite that always ultimately destroys its host" (Oxford English Dictionary)
I live off you
And you live off me
And the whole world
Lives off everybody
See we gotta be exploited
By somebody, by somebody, by somebody
