My favorite moment in the (underrated) James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (the one with the so-much-worse-than-Sean-Connery-it’s-bananas-but-better-in-hindsight-than-Moonraker-era-Roger-Moore, George Lazenby) is the scene after Bond has lost his Double O status and has to clear out his desk.* As he’s cleaning, he comes across all of these gadgets and souvenirs–some we remember from earlier adventures, others speak to these undocumented adventures beyond what we’ve been allowed to see. It is oddly moving.
Anyway, cleaning out some drawers here at The Memory Palace, I came across a CD of a radio documentary I did a few years ago about the history of music programming on the radio that I hadn’t thought about in awhile. It is no exploding pen, but some of you might like it. Link is here.
