A radio collage
based on material
written and assembled

In this free-flowing treatment of poems, conversation, snatches of music and electronic sounds, Mr. Allen has constructed a radiophonic work in the borderland between literature and music. It takes its place alongside other recent experimental programmes, including Crook and Souster's Seasons through the Day of a Town by the Sea and Rosemary Tonk's [sic] Sono-Montage, but ultimately it should perhaps be listened to more in the spirit of a piece of music, such as John Cage's Fontana Mix.

+ Introduced by GEORGE MACBETH
followed by an interlude at 10.55

Matthew, I really really enjoy your programs!!! Thanks so much for doing all this work for the love of the music. I have been a Canterbury fan for many years and you have tracks I've never heard before. How do you find these gems?
I have photos I've taken of gigs here in the USA. Lots of Daevid Allen at different times. Would you like to post them to the blog?
Thanks again!!!!
