Show Notes

Charles is reminiscing as his house move up the hill takes shape. This week he reflects on a night listening to writer Fran Lebowitz, who has become a star via Netflix after a life being the ultimate sardonic commentator on America's East Coast. Her York show reveals she doesn't think much of Andy Warhol's art.  A modern-day Dorothy Parker perhaps. Graham delights in Steve Coogan and Hugh Grant's take on politics then gets stuck into the latest offshoot from Radiohead, The Smile. Is English Literature doomed in university studies? If so, why?
