4/3/2013 ‘SpAcEdReAmMeNaGeRiE’ tracklist

Mulling over the fact that only one link from the past few weeks works. Why is this, what made that one so special and why, when all the links used to be amenable, are they now stonewalling?! Should I attempt to be helpful again, or settle for a much more basic list of the tracks played on Monday’s show?
The sonic hour was a kind of tribute to Kevin Ayers, founding member of British psychedelic originals Soft Machine, who passed away at his home in France last month -last words written reportedly ‘you can’t shine if you don’t burn’- and also to Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse, who ended his life at the beginning of March three years ago. In tribute: lots of  gorgeouslydreamy and psychedelic sounds and, as the menagerie of the title suggests, several with titles or contents including animals.

A suitably dreamy way to end the sonic journey for another week……
On the offchance that the technological gods are smiling on me, here are a couple of attempted links:
Kevin Ayers: http://reynoldsretro.blogspot.cz/2007/12/kevin-ayers-and-robert-wyatt-grauniad.html

Until next time, wishing anyone perusing this many a sonic joy! S.
