Episode 151: The Story of Maria Barberi
The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia, a collective of independently owned and operated podcasts. A note on shownotes. In a perfect world, you go into each episode of the Memory Palace knowing nothing about what's coming. It's pretentious, sure, but that's the intention. So, if you don't want any spoilers or anything, you can click play without reading ahead. Anyway... Music  Inside River, Pt. 1 by Akira Kosuemura. . Sonata for Solo Cello 1: Dialogo by Ligeti, performed by Miklos Perenyi. All the Land Ablaze by Laura Cannell Frost Trees from Lalo Schiffren's score to The Fox. And Finding the Flag from Georges Delarue's score to The Day of the Dolphin.
Episode 150: Late One Night
The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia, a collective of independently owned and operated podcasts. A note on shownotes. In a perfect world, you go into each episode of the Memory Palace knowing nothing about what's coming. It's pretentious, sure, but that's the intention. So, if you don't want any spoilers or anything, you can click play without reading ahead. Anyway... Music  We start with 666 from the score to The Omen. Transition to Fremd by Lambert. Go to Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett. Hear some of Leonard Berstein's score to Rebel Without a Cause. Hit Denmark by the Portland Cello Project And hear some of Musette's On the Green Tape. Notes Bobby's story is covered in a lot of histories of one hit wonders and novelty tunes. But, if you want to really dig in, you should read, Monster Mash: Half Dead in Hollywood, his autobiography.
Episode 149: Dance by the Ocean

In a perfect world, you go into each episode of the Memory Palace knowing nothing about what's coming. It's pretentious, sure, but that's the intention.

Move in and out of Reading a Wave by Arp Which mixes briefly with Stephen Gosling and Blair Macmillan playing John Adams' Hallelujah Junction. We also here Umitaro Abe play Reperages Pour Piano. And Brambles play Such Owls as You. Notes There's a pretty comprehensive book on Bayocean by Bert and Margie Webber called Bayocean: the Oregon Town That Fell Into the Sea There's also a terrific website that appears to be regularly updating that's filled with all sorts of stories and resources about Bayocean.
