underneath the radar: week two

Where it all began...
Eli: age 7, thank you Mick Rock :)

Many thanks to those who caught the show this week, it was positively huge. Bursting at the seams one might say. I did the honours of premièring my half hour radio documentary I produced for uni. As quoted by the accompanying essay:

"This is for the Fans" is an aural collage of intimate stories from rock music’s most devoted and passionate. The feature particularly concentrates on fans that express their passion through different creative methods. Characters range from the writer, who composes poetry based on the music of his favourite band, to the fashion designer who has designed clothing inspired by that shown in a video clip. These stories are contrasted by a grim narration, which indirectly associates love of music with society’s negative perception of fandom. The piece contains the underlying conclusion that love or hate can occur with the associations fans have with music, not with the music itself.

If you did miss the documentary and you do want to hear it desperately.. well, you can ask me if you really really want it. I'll probably turn you down, but there's nothing to lose in trying!
