TONIGHT ON DANCE DEVOTION I’m paying tribute to legendary New York dance club The Loft. On Valentines Day 1970 David Mancuso started his invitation-only party Love Saves the Day and disco culture as we know it was born. I’ll be playing Loft classics from the likes of Loose Joints, Manu Dibango, Salsoul Orchestra and Mr Fingers as well as modern dance tunes that keep the disco fire burning to this day. Get your dancing shoes on and join me from anywhere on the globe using the online Radio 2 iPlayer (link in bio), the BBC Sounds app or on UK radio 88-91 FM. See you at midnight! @bbcradio2#R2DD#radio2#dancedevotion#disco#funk#rave#house#dancemusic#raregroove#classics#bbcradio2#davidmancuso#theloft#lovesavestheday
Sharing the classics with you because sometimes you just want to K.I.S.S 😘

Charles Lyell was a 19th century British geologist whose work, 𝘗𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘤𝘪𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘎𝘦𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘺 popularized James Hutton's earlier theory of uniformitarianism. This Doctrine of Unity as it is also called argues that natural processes that happen today, such as earthquakes and volcanoes, also happened in the past. This idea was revolutionary in its day.
This week I've been feeding my storyteller soul with old classics that I've never seen, starting with Lawrence of Arabia. At just shy of 4 hours, it's one of the true epics and hails back to a time when pacing wasn't dictated by the frenetic shifting of scenes, but rather an attention to telling a real story through teleological dialogue, purposeful body language and unflinching gazes. Pretty rare to be treated to that at the movies these days. It feels like the cinematog overlords believe we've got the attention span of gnats and a distaste for cerebral adventures.
While the ending of this particular movie left me absolutely gutted, the entirety of it was an absolute feast. The third scene (the one with the match, pictured here, and that has spawned countless memes) is barely 2 1/2 minutes long and tells you just about everything you need to know about T.E. Lawrence's character. (Spooky how much Peter O'Toole actually looked like him!) And something I didn't realize until I went back to watch the movie again was that the entire second scene was filled with a handful of really critical characters offering a ton of foreshadowing, setting the table for the contradiction and complexity of Lawrence's character.
This was pretty magical storytelling, and O'Toole's mannerisms and joyfully eccentric quirks made you fall in love with this imperfect underdog right out of the gate. All kinds of feels. It's the kind of storytelling that leaves a hole in your heart when it's done. Not ready to let go of the characters that have inhabited you for those hours.
Tonight, time to cue up another 4-hour epic: Gone with the Wind! While I've been to the mansion used for much of the filming backdrop, I've never actually seen more than a handful of snippets from the actual film.
Thank you, Netflix, for the front row seat to such incredible storytelling. Here's where you can watch them: 🎥 Lawrence of Arabia

“I looked up at the mass of signs and stars in the night sky and laid myself open for the first time to the benign indifference of the world.”
So much of the foundational scholarship in Classics starts somewhere in German. Medieval studies too. Hence all the crazy 3rd, 4th language requirements for many PhDs!
Lots of that stuff *should* make its way into English, though. Some gatekeeping there.
What drew you to a love of books and reading? The imaginary lands, the dragons and damsels in distress, the stories of times past?
Having kids and teaching them the joys of reading has me thinking about my own love of reading. Often as a child, it was my escape. The one thing I can say my grandma and I had in common was our love of books. All long car rides involved audio books. It's why our childhood dog was named Hank (from Hank the Cowdog). Once as punishment for some trivial misdoing- she took all the books out of my room (and returned them when she calmed down and realized that nobody should ever be punished with the removal of their books). My brother doesn't love reading but even he has fond memories involving Hank the Cowdog and the Magic Treehouse books and has his wife always on the lookout for both sets of books.
While I love many genres of books- older books are my favorite. Bobbsey Twins, Little Women, Little Lord Fauntleroy (which I haven't found for my collection yet), Nancy Drew, etc. Old books make me happy.
I think a decent layout and some smart and unusual cars. It's never going to be as big or varied as the NEC, but I found it more interesting that previous years. ExCeL was (and is by design, I guess) utterly soulless, and the wrong place for classics IMPO.
