Valentine's Day will be here on the 14th. Let's pass a couple love notes!
Some people believe that the Ancient Roman holiday of the Lupercalia was the forerunner to Valentine's Day. That's not actually true, but there are some associations so we'll take a look at what the Lupcalia was all about.
Then we'll talk a bit about the Christian St. Valentine - or ValentineS, plural. There was actually more than one Valentine - but were they all lovers??
Which brings us to Romantic Love - as old as the human race, right? Yes, and no. As in all aspects of love, the answer is never a simple one. But we'll talk about the poet Chaucer and the middle ages and go from there.
And where to go? Sex Magick!
Be well! Do good! Enjoy the show.
Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Jefferson Airplane: "My Best Friend"; Kate Bush: "The Sensual World"; Frenchy and the Punk: "Make Out"; The Moors: "The Snake that Coils Within, Without"; Jose Cotton: "Johnnie, Are You Queer?" and more.
