Playing tracks by
Ghosty, Clear Lagoon, Richard Swift, The Tsars and Cord.
Janina Karpinska stands in for Susi Oddball and devotes the hour to David Lindsay, author extrordinaire , particularly of Voyage of Arcturus reading extracts and discussing him with Alan J Cannon.
Clarifications: 1) The title of the book on DL by Pick,Wilson and EH Visiak is in fact called 'The Strange Genius of DL . .'
2) DL grew up from birth in Blackheath, London, though with staunch Scots as parents, it is difficult to know how Scottish his accent would have been in reality.
3) Alan meant telescope of course not microscope.
Mention should have been made of The Life and Works of David Lindsay by Bernard Sellin and finally please refer to http://www.violetapple.org.uk/ for all things David Lindsay. Apologies to Janina; it should read Karpinska in the programme title but unfortunately it's the one bit I can't edit.
