Better Off Without A Wife - Nighthawks At The Diner [028]

Sam and Martin are joined by their latest guest-host Catherine Hirst, who finally confronts the fact that their perspective on 1970s America may be slightly… incomplete? Surely not?!? Working their way through both the lyrical implications as well as the musical storytelling in this weeks tracks leads to a casual discussion of sex and religion, topics guaranteed to generate zero controversy.

Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Better Off Without A Wife, Nighthawks At The Diner, Tom Waits (1975)

Icicle, Under the Pink, Tori Amos (1994)

… and for angling context, Fishing With John (episode 2) - Jamaica with Tom Waits
