If you don’t know the work of British comedian John Finnemore, you have a brilliant opportunity to get to know him on our extended break! His best work so far is undoubtedly his radio program Cabin Pressure. In it, he plays the daffy Arthur Schappey, steward on his mother’s charter airplane. He is broadcasting every third day while locked up in COVID isolation, and his show is called Cabin Fever.
Toward the end of this episode he plays a game I introduce to you: combining book titles to tell a story.
Without further ado, my entries in the game:
I capture a castle. A river runs through it.
What’s a smart woman like you doing at home? Getting things done!
Let’s have a tea party at the foot of the rainbow!
Quiet! The forces of matter echo in celebration.
The great Turkey Walk around the world in 80 days.
Paradise lost the secret garden.
The witch of Blackbird Pond and the life-changing magic of tidying up.
Mrs. Pollifax pursued the mystery of Capital.
