Another of our challenges here on At Water’s Edge, today’s program, 52 Stories Up, only received two responses (and they’re GOOD!), so most of the show is devoted to tracks that tell stories.
The challenge was… well, challenging. A few months ago, I posted an image on Facebook, a spectacular view of downtown Los Angeles from the office where I was working. I mentioned that it was 52 stories up, and of course the puns started flying. Stories (as in tales), and cards, and great wordplay ensued. A challenge was born: create a track that incorporates elements of both your favorite story and your favorite card game.
The remainder of the program relies on the RadioSpiral library, where we went spelunking for tracks that told stories in one form or another.
