Advanced ages, sounds

One of 2008's more interesting trends was a focus on older people as fashion models (in every sense of that word) -- that's the subject of my Moment piece this week. But before I paste a snap of the column, let me recommend a piece of radio that also makes old models sound more interesting than new ones. This time the models are synthesisers: the programme is Selected Radiophonic Works, a three-hour compilation of BBC radio pieces featuring the Radiophonic Workshop. There's some absolutely unmissable rare experimental radio in there -- like the sonic dantesque hell in Inferno Revisited, or Delia Derbyshire's amazing sequence of dreamscapes from 1964 -- and it's only online for another six days. Do not miss.
