A dead reporter warns us from the past while today a young man sings a wishful hopeful song but Orwell cautions from the grave while an ex-hobo says that the long memory is important to access. Lots of ex this and that forms a collage of the spoken word and music with which this program is woven and speaks to memories and the media and garbage too. With the latter two often closely related, me thinks!
