BBC Schools Radio Series Drama Workshop - The Seasons (1969)
They really, really don't make 'em like this any more - correct me if you know any different, but the British Broadcasting Corporation of 2016 sadly no longer appear to commission any music for children to improvise interpretive dance to, let alone base it around creepy, primitive Radiophonic Workshop electronics and equally disturbing declaimed poetry like they did on this 1969 production. Fun for any neofolk afficionados picking up this album: read the poems in the booklet, and imagine each one being performed by Current 93. Hilarity will ensue, along the lines of one of those Buzzfeed quizzes like 'Who said it - Morrissey or Alan Partridge?'.
It is night no more; the day is stillborn
