Dear listeners, thanks for being awake for our Saturday morning show! The songs were picked for an imagined romantic tragedy. We traced the nightmarish fling between our female protagonist who desired the I-Thou and a certain predatory fellow with a taste for vulnerable women. Often, they talked past each other, giving rise to the dissonance of voices. The climax was the breakup segment, during which we played Variation of Birds, a new one from The Knife. The starkness, harshness, eeriness of electronic simulations of frenetic avian chirping echoes the relationship's inevitable reduction to animality and finally I-It. So! Stay away from scary men/women.
