Sat 25 May - JACQUELINE SAPHRA - Puberty and Poetry

Jacqueline Saphra discusses sex, experimentation and the confusing pain and wonder of transition into sexual adulthood. Looking back at bohemian coming-of-age confusion in the 1970s and shifts occurring here and now with young funny women (like Ilana Glazer) changing the way we talk and think about sexual expression. She reads from 'All My Mad Mothers' (Nine Arches Press) and 'A Bargain with the Light' ((Hercules Editions) which focuses on the artist and photographer Lee Miller, lover of great men, raped child and self-determining woman. Performative musical interpretations and explorations live on air.

Sat 5 May - Touring with the Rutles - NEIL INNES

Neil Innes takes time before The Rutles tour to chew the tail of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, remember George Harrison and Viv Stanshall, and to reflect on what it was like to make that epic mockumentary 'All You Need Is Cash' and the Innes Book of Records. Neil explains that The Rutles were conceived not so much as a parody of The Beatles but as a parallel band from an alternative universe. With fresh anecdotal gems to delight the most hardened Bonzo/Rutles fan.
