This is a little bonus episode featuring a short interview I did with Oberon White, a queer, Welsh cabaret performance artist.You might have already listened to episode 11 which features a poem / soundscape by Oberon. Its an excerpt from their show winegod. If you haven’t listened to that yet I urge you to.In this bonus episode Oberon and I chat in more detail about winegod, a show that explored queer icons and took inspiration from mythology.A transcript of the episode can be found here:https://taliarandall.com/2020/07/27/ctr-bonus-winegod-part-2-transcript/Cassette Tape Radio is written and presented by Talia Randall.

"What is queer time? What is queer space?" Oberon White. This episode I offer you something from another artist, a piece called 'Prophylaxis' by Oberon White, a performance artist who is a regular fixture on London's queer underground cabaret scene. The excerpt you're about to hear is from Oberon's show winegod, which traced the ancientness of queer identity and grappled with the erasure of queer history.A transcript of the episode can be found here: https://taliarandall.com/2020/07/16/ctr-11-winegod-transcript/Cassette Tape Radio is written and presented by Talia Randall.

Today’s show is all about the bizarre, embarrassing, inexplicable notes that I’ve found in my phone and in various notebooks.I’m not talking about long chunks of prose or deep excerpts from a diary or journal. I’m talking about random words and sentences that are just on their own, in the middle of a blank page. Ideas or phrases I’ve written to myself but that have absolutely no context, like I’m supposed to know exactly what I meant when I wrote it down.Do you do this? Please let me know I’m not the only one. Its short and sweet episode, I hope enjoy.A transcript of the episode can be found here:https://taliarandall.com/2020/07/01/ctr-10-notes-to-self-transcript/Cassette Tape Radio is written and presented by Talia Randall.

"The Last Poets are the birthplace of rap" (Chuck D).  The Last Poets were founded in Harlem on May 19th 1968 - Malcolm X's Birthday. They've influenced everyone from Erykah Badu to Public Enemy, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan and countless others.   In this episode of Cassette Tape Radio I chat with Abiodun Oyewole, one of the founding members of The Last Poets; one of the fathers of hip hop.

Most of today's episode was recorded live at my poetry knees-up What Words Are Ours? Today's partner is Free Word Centre in London. The venue and I were due to collaborate on my show What Words Are Ours? a night that showcases D/deaf and hearing artists on the same stage.
