WTM 1171: Wreck Birthing Pain ~ wReck thiS meSS ~ Amsterdam ~ Ethno-Illogical Psycho-Radiographies ~ 10.02.14: WTM special mix to sooth a friend's labour pains about to give birth to her 1st. Daughter Paloma was born at home with a midwife & me as DJ-handholder. The main tracks I played back then were “The Sinking of the Titanic” Gavin Bryars & “Gentle Side of John Coltrane” Plus Satie & a few others. The midwife eventually asked for my playlist. I produced this show as a gift to the about-to-be new parents & to remind me of the upcoming birthdays of both Paloma & Nina. I liked this mix so much that I decided to make it my next radio show. I don’t know which prompts or inspires the other but I will forever relate the music I played back then with the birth of Paloma – and, of course, the comical & hypothetical taking photos with my camera - neglecting that all important detail [back in analogue time] to load actual film into an actual camera ... enjoy.

ha ha...I took a sound recording device to my 1st daughters birth and was so in awe (and a little freaked out) that I quite forgot to press the record button!
