Shipbuilding





BBC Radio 4 har laget et halvtimes program om Clive Langer og Elvis Costello sin sang "Shipbuilding", skrevet for Robert Wyatt.
Hør programmet her (det står ingenting om hvor lenge de vil la programmet være tilgjengelig).

Robert Wyatt er ikke intervjuet i programmet, men vi hører komponistene, politikere, artister (Unthanks) og filosofen Richard Ashcroft, som får denne omtalen borte hos BBC Radio 4:

"Richard Ashcroft is a philosopher who wants the song, which he describes as a kind of secular hymn, played at his funeral because it gives a perfect expression of how he believes we should think about life. Not being able to feel the emotion of the song would, he feels, would be like being morally tone-deaf. If you don't like this song, he'd find it hard to be your friend".
