Hier Heintje, da Dutschke. Das Jahr 1968: zwischen ´´Mama´´ und ´´Shi, Schah, Shit´´, zwischen gepflegter Bürgerlichkeit und schreiendem Protest ist die Gesellschaft gespalten wie nie zuvor. Eine ebenso kontrastreiche wie spannende Collage einzigartiger O-Töne, ein klingender Rückblick auf ein Jahr der Gegensätze, dessen Folgen bis heute lebendig sind.Mit Originaltönen von Heinrich Böll, Theodor W. Adorno, Rudi Dutschke u.a.Auszeichnungen: Deutscher Hörbuchpreis 2005 des WDR hr2-Hörbuch Bestenliste 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Peter Heusch, Ursula Illert.

Flora Goldwasser is private school perfection - all wrapped up in a vintage Grace Kelly dress. But when she leaves elite Manhattan for an academy of unwashed hippies and ironic hipsters in the Hudson Valley, Flora discovers that when it comes to popularity and approval there is no commutative property. Her love of Maison Kayser macaroons, perfect French conjugation, Jackie Kennedy sunglasses and Audrey Hepburn movies make her the ultimate outsider in a land of kale, quinoa and tattered tunics. Told through a collage of letters, emails and clippings, Everything Must Go is a thoughtful, nuanced story about identity, sex, friendship and the bridges we cross (and burn) as we grow into ourselves. A budding Marxist, a Jenna Lyons doppelganger and a jacked dude named Agnes come together with a vending machine full of vintage accessories as Flora throws off the mantle of expectations, assumptions and perfection - the trappings of her old life. Everything Must Go is an offbeat, modern novel with emotionally rich and compelling characters. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Fenton.

Posing more riddles than the average sphinx, with its decipherable answers pointing somewhere dark, Song Cycle was anything but passive. I had already witnessed hippie bands playing with their backs to the hall, so the thought of late ´60s musicians being interested in their audience struck me as a concept bordering on revolutionary. The debut album from songwriter and pianist Van Dyke Parks, Song Cycle first appeared in 1968 on Warner Brothers Records. Its twelve songs led listeners through Joycean wordplay and sound collages to reveal messages of dissent and personal loss, at odds with Parks´ buoyant, riotously eclectic music. Monumentally ambitious and equally expensive, Song Cycle resembled a film — possibly Citizen Kane — more than the pop music of its day; like Kane, Parks´ masterwork was adored by critics yet all but ignored by paying customers. In his efforts to plumb the mysteries of this quixotic record and its subsequent fate, Richard Henderson interviews several of the key figures involved with Song Cycle, notably Parks himself and producer Lenny Waronker. 1.
