Street interviews, listener call-ins, vinyl gluttery, sporadic normalcy, original floperas and fiktion, blatant talking over songs, politix, tenderness, and a vague undercurrent of angst. Right up your alley!

A Distortion of Imagination. Story and music by C. Pigeon
I had written this story in one sitting a couple of months back. I even re-wrote it, which is rare for me, hoping to give it more cohesion and less flowery language. I tried it in an American accent, but ended up defaulting to my preferred fake English accent, which I'm sure some find annoying. I get it.
Admittedly, I ended up airing this because I was not going to be at the station for Thanksgiving (thanks Mary Wing for filling in!) and I had nothing prepared. So, I remembered this story and decided to air the original version. It's weird. Sometimes I hear a story and I think it's funny or pretty good, and then I can hear it the next day and it sounds like the worst thing ever. I know this story is not developed very well, is ALL over the place, and is probably a massive chore to sit through. It touches on a lot of the themes I like. Death, redemption, crows, corn, midwestern settings, men, women, cars, heaven, hell, etc. I wish it was better. The fact that NO ONE said a damn word about it pretty much tells me it sucked for the listeners, but I feel there is something in it that makes it worthwhile. THen again, I am biased, so it is probably a piece of self-indulgent crap. At any rate, here it is. Thanks for listening. Always remember.
