While this makes a fascinating radio narrative, I listen through it to hear the year 1973, because Marty's crew spent a week capturing wild ambient sound to mix into the soundtrack. You can't mask the reality coming through. Oh, we also get a thick dose of Little Italy atmosphere, what with the continual oldie pop songs and opera playing everywhere, and that beside the traffic, street noise, parties, bars, and dialogue. The people we get to know here are terrible. They're petty criminals and racists (they all seem to hate black people while doo wop serenades them), yet somehow we are drawn to them. We become witnesses. It's truly a parallel universe very like our own, whether we want to admit that or not. This show might even put you in a trance. (It happened to some live listeners.)
Produced and engineered by dj bennett (
