[Repeated from Monday 2pm.] In a Mediaeval world where everyone thinks it’s great to be on the Great Chain of Being, one man’s unstoppable mission to bring people together through music is set against the immovable object of Lord Selfish’s demand for total obedience and a catchy tune (about total obedience). Join us on a trip, by foot, through the magical world that is Selfish Manor for stories, songs and a moral lesson on why we must always obey our social superiors. Bring your best boots! It’s going to be muddy as hell! Selfish Tales is the latest emanation from The Bing Selfish Radio Show and will bring you stories you never knew you wanted to hear. Expect music, including actual songs, voices, sounds and surprises. We can’t tell you much more right now, or you’d just steal all our ideas and do it all yourself on far more expensive equipment.
