Esoterica (host) 2:02:55 PM
just that it wasn't your ears, mr. malcontent. the beauty of mistakes on the air is you just keep cruising and often no ones knows! or if they do, they're good natured...;)

This pandemic has forced Asbury Park’s Showroom Cinema out of business. That’s where I’d see the Short Film nominees every Oscar year. They used to be compiled on home video that I’d borrow from the library. Now I suppose I’d have to stream them for a price. As for the aforementioned Birkin movie: http://www.tgv-movie.com/
Tom 2:36:15 PM
for sure, rocking it this afternoon, all great picks
Esoterica (host) 2:37:54 PM
Thx, Tom and Mr. Malcontent! Also, David; I will def explore. Thank You!
David Shortell 2:39:39 PM
Speaking of Warren Beatty, I need to see his 1966 movie “Kaleidoscope”. Jane Birkin plays a character in it named “Exquisite Thing”.
Esoterica (host) 2:40:39 PM
you and i both, David! haven't seen it...
Esoterica (host) 2:40:54 PM
sounds trippy
Esoterica (host) 2:41:09 PM
the film i mean
ᎷяMΔᏞᏨØИᎢΞNᎢ 2:41:28 PM
@DavidShortell, I'm hopeful that businesses that closed as a result of the pandemic can return and be even more successful in the future! Nothing is forever. Thanks for sharing and caring about films!

DJ Esoterica, many thanks for another great show! Kind regards to you!
David Shortell 2:50:36 PM
Speaking of the Beatles, George Harrison’s score for the 1968 movie “Wonderwall” was released as an LP on Apple--and can probably be considered the first solo album by any of those guys. Jane Birkin plays a character in the movie named “Penny Lane”.
Esoterica (host) 2:51:01 PM
aw thanks! man, zz top back in the day, great musicians, no?
