PMB204: Spoken Word (Peter Wyngarde, Jayne Mansfield, Dirk Bogarde, Stanley Unwin, Felix Kubin, F.C. Judd, Raymond Scott, Jim Henson, Sonja Neuman, Ken Nordine, William Shatner, Laura Huxley, Tristram Cary, Rick Jones, Hawkwind, Brian Blessed)
This week’s show comprises a star-studded line-up of thespians, philosophers, bards and boffins who variously demonstrate the power of the spoken word.The idea for this week’s theme came from listener Dolly Dolly David Yates.
It seems to have uncorked a rather rich supply of possibilities, one which we will definitely return to in the near future.
But one question remains, dear listener, is it nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune?
