We are very excited to have our very first musical performance live in Castaway Studios by the wonderful Julitha Ryan. Julitha performs a piece written exclusively for MTAW inspired by listener supplied creative prompts of Minder, 1234 123 and Everybody Thinks You're Dancing. Julitha also performs a brand new yet be released piece from an upcoming release called Fire and Ice in collaboration with Penny Ikinger.
Sean starts off the show with a poem called Wake Me Up With A Kiss. The poem was originally written as a commission to respond to a mural painted in East St Kilda. He then went on to write and record the poem with Sean M Whelan & The Mime Set, Sean’s first poetry and music collaboration. You can here more of Sean M Whelan & The Mime and purchase recordings right here.
