"I’m overjoyed to have discovered this abridged radio dramatization of The Lord of the Rings from BBC Radio 4. Originally aired in 26 half-hour segments in 1981 and narrated by Irish actor Gerard Murphy, the radio drama features Jackson’s original Bilbo, Ian Holm, as the voice of the younger Baggins and ringbearer Frodo. The venerable Bill Nighy (a.k.a. Davy Jones, Rufus Scrimgeour, and of course, Slartibartfast) voices Frodo’s BFF/sidekick/faithful valet, Sam Gamgee, and the cast is rounded out by a couple dozen more excellent British stage and TV actors, as well as the talents of legendary radio sound effects unit, the BBC Radiophonic Workshop."
This is one of my desert island discs along with that other masterpiece of Cuban music BVSC(http://mlkshk.com/p/YW7S). This is an entirely different animal than BVSC both uniquely Laswell and specifically Cuban.
If you haven't heard it before I highly recommend giving it a listen.
Led Zeppelin - Denmark Radio 1969 (Full Performance)
This is my favourite video document of Led Zeppelin. There's just no bullshit here and it's so insanely intimate compared to the massive stadium shows they would eventually become famous for. No lights, no lasers, no screaming throng. Just a slab of musical meat.
