“Alive, alive, I wanna get up and jive, wanna wreck my stockings in some jukebox dive”

In this episode of The Ear Has To Travel, I take you on a trip around Canada with songs of love, longing and related things, interwoven with soundscapes from Claude Schryer’s beautiful Simple Soundscapes project.

In a somewhat more narrative take on radio programming itself, this episode maps the forming and unraveling of a romantic relationship (in songs) across the span of a year (in soundscapes).
