    or before you and I were born
   Spoken words every week
An eclectic musical adventure awaits…

  • FFRW 29 January 2004 Side B Aired: Wednesday, January 22, 2020

    Her eyes, she's on the dark side Neutralize every man in sight  
    Gabriel before me Raphael behind me Michael to my right 
    Uriel on my left side In the circle of fire
    Grace O'Malley is coming over the sea, armed warriors as her guard, 
    Last night as I lay dreaming my way across the sea
    James Mangan brought me comfort with laudnum and poitin
    Easy to fall part of your skull starts to break away
    A cheater's walk down the block behind this evil street
    Flirt with me don't keep hurtin' me don't cause me pain

  • FFRW 28 January 2004 Aired: Wednesday, January 15, 2020

    It's a beautiful world we live in  A sweet romantic place
    Baby is grateful for her life  She owes the angels for their lullaby
    Let the moon drip in Let the rain fall out
    Where's the justice and where's the sense?
    When all the pain is on my side of the fence
    Shaded eyes they are the ones who'll lead you to your deliverance
    From the figure of doom Force you to understand
    Lock you in a room with a holy roller and a one man band
    What kind of woman would make her fortress out of straw

  • FFRW 27 New Year Sun Aired: Wednesday, January 8, 2020

    Most of our lives we await your embrace and to know what it's like when we meet face to face Yeah, but nobody searches Nobody cares somehow When the loving that you've wasted Comes raining from a hapless cloud Come a little closer honey, I won't bite ya. One more lager and I might learn to like ya.

  • FFRW 24 The Moon The Ocean and Her Aired: Tuesday, December 17, 2019
    Oh, Scufflin', I been up that lonesome road
    And I seen a lot of suns goin' down
    Oh, but trust me No low life's gonna run me around
    On my chest the radiante star
     and the cry of peace of the Orixás
    Lover had to leave me Cross the desert plain
    Turned to me, his lady Tells me "lover wait"
    It'll keep you boilin' in that poison
    Only the truly twisted know so well
    You don't need drugs to show you heaven, baby
    'Cause there's plenty clean in hell
    There's a room in his pallet
