Late with Taffeta V – Bedtime stories &

lullabies for people who never sleep

I missed hearing late night DJs tell stories and play music. So I did it myself.
This is my podcast, but really it’s a late night radio show.
Half talking, half music, always with a theme.
Bedtime stories and lullabies for people who never sleep

It’s Late with Taffeta V

Listen up for a stories about sleeplessness and the hottest apartment ever, songs by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the Go Gos, Ella Fitzgerald (and more), and the true horror story of The Rabbit Lady, Mary Toft.
