this week's shows on Mad Wasp Radio from 18 – 25 MAY 

All times are British Summer Time (BST). Programmes and timings may be subject to change (particularly if we press the wrong button). And, in case you were wondering, because one or two of us were big fans of Ready, Steady Go, our week (and weekend) starts at 6pm on a Friday.

Cabinet Of Curiosities

Historically, the powerful and rich liked to gather together all kinds of strange artifacts from around the world, to show off their wealth and education. These items were sometimes genuine archaeological treasures and natural wonders - others, bunkum fakes that would make PT Barnum blush! All these items would be jumbled together in a specially designed cabinet –they were rarely organised in any categories we'd recognise today –their proximity was solely based on how well they went together and if they formed a theme. So that's the format of Cabinet Of Curiosities. Each week, there will be a subject given. The idea is that you can pick something that you think goes with the theme.
