Tonight Explorers Room Returns to Australia (Tourism, Advertising, National Parks and more from Urban Bowerbird)
Tonight we return to Australia, this time to take a look at tourism and advertising jingles, national park music and vacation novelties, and odd gospel, as well as some soundtracks and schmaltz from Sven Libaek. Once again with Urban Bowerbird as our spiritual guide. Less an naturalist's daydream than last week's show, this is more a anthropological look at the banal poetry/poetry-of-the-banal and time-capsule artifacts of forgotten, more or less mainstream Australian media. 7-10, TONIGHT!
DO THE KANGAROO HOP!
