About the show

Olaf Furniss.

The arrival of goods or services in Mexico City is announced by a wide variety of sounds. The postman uses mini-pan pipes, the bin men a brass bell and the gas vendors a call which is more infuriating than any alarm clock. Olaf Furniss describes many of the sounds and contemplates how empty the Mexican capital would be without them.
