Hawksmoor/psychogeograhy walk – with John McCarthy, for BBC Radio 4

“I did a little Hawksmoor/psychogeograhy walk – with John McCarthy, for BBC Radio 4. It went out this morning (Saturday Dec. 22nd 2012) at around 9.45. And can probably be excavated something.”

Still available at this link today 25th of December, a something nice and relaxing for Boxing day if you haven’t heard it already.
