Ever drifting down the stream-
Lingering in the golden gleam-
Life, what is it but a dream?"
Lewis Carroll / Through the Looking Glass
Picture two young California girls on holiday in Europe in 1983, recording and sending tapes full of their thoughts and experiences back home to their boyfriends, and also with an ear to the fact that said boys had wacky radio shows and intended to play the best bits on the air or cut them up as audio collage fodder.
Here we present side one of the first of two of these surviving tapes by these very clever and opinionated ladies. Sadly, the missing one had a lot of verite sound as they walked around London and commented saucily about what they saw, so now we'll pick the story up as they've moved south on their trip.
By the way, these letters are quite randy, raunchy and filthy, so I'd rate this a NSFW audio experience.
Since I'm presenting the unedited tapes, some of it will get a bit tedious, but there are some hilarious stories and bits of dialogue for those who can wade through the whole document.
