The Wavelength
Monday May 16th, 2022 with Joe Reilly
Ageing, Loneliness, Dementia and Alzheimers explored in music (along with some interesting trivia about the Good Brothers)

The show started off simply enough - exploring the roots of the Good Brothers' hit "Fox On The Run." Who knew it was an old Manfred Mann single that made it into the top ten in the UK in the 60s? But the song by Elliott Brood (Oh Me) sent me exploring a bunch of songs about ageing which then led to a lot of music about dementia and Alzheimer's disease. And this digging all happened in real time for me as I was putting this show together. Some of the musical pieces I knew about before producing this show and others I learned about and heard for the first time while working on this. It gets quite dense and dark in the final half hour with the musical creations of The Caretaker. If you want to explore this amazing set of recordings entirely check them out here on Bandcamp: Take care and thanks for listening.

in the beginning of life we call it learning in the end, forgetting the in-between must take responsibility as a source of how and why society does not regard THAT as problematic. what really do we know of value?
