A relief from spectacular sport circus, paid political parrots and sky god stooges.
Today a cheerful tribute to the inimitable Gore Vidal who died last weekend.
If you didn't know him, listen in for a series of clips from his incredible life as novelist, playwright, political essayist and libertine. A man who beguiled the wealthy, then poured ink over their blood.
You Tube channels "MenofLetters" and "Nathan Bridle" provided some of the rarest of recordings of Vidal from outside America.
Today the audience will hear Gore Vidal without the throttle American media repeatedly placed on him while alive.
A taste of the filter is popping up at PBS with the American Masters profile.
