8k84 Touch Me I’m Sick

A skew-whiff exploration of tunes suggested by this pandemic … we are in week 3 of lockdown here in Aotearoa, our death toll is at 5, deaths globally are frightening in the extreme. I do not intend to make light of this horrifying situation but I’m not averse to a little humour.. nor do I shy away from potentially offensive soundbites, the dark side if you will. If I offend then I am sorry… we all must find our own levels, our own ways to get through this … and I wish you and yours all the best! xoxo skew (first broadcast on 8k.nz 12/04/2020)
