Becoming one.

ECHO: Psychical Continuity Is Not a Given but Something Constructed

Dear Listener,

Today, on Radio Dodo, a trio of songs on the theme of fading: into and away.  I bring these songs to you with great affection, and I imagine you out there, waiting to hear them.  But, maybe I am more like Marta Beckett, in my opera house, painting my audience on the wall.

To fade, away or into, has me recalling those times, which might be the best times, when your skin seems inseparable from the rain and air; or when you look out into the distance, and the landscape dissolves and expands through the space to meet you.

Not Fade Away

Bell Bottom Blues

Fade Into You

Don't you forget now, my love is bigger than a Cadillac.
