Whitechapel Bell Foundry (53)

Today’s post about the Bell Foundry is one of the more unusual, but demonstrates the cultural reach and resonance of what is happening. It’s an episode of a programme called Celine’s Salon on Soho Radio in which Celine Hispiche, the host of the programme, sings a song of lament about the possibility that the Foundry might be destroyed. I found it unexpectedly moving that the ideas and issues which we have been struggling to get over should now have gone so mainstream in popular culture and she speaks very well about the issues as well as singing her lament.

It is the second item on her programme from three days ago, so you have to scroll through the first nineteen minutes. I recommend it:-

  1. Thank you, that was worth a listen. Your “ten minutes or so” is a bit short. We heard the item start after 19 minutes with the song a little over a minute in. The whole item is a bit over 6 minutes long in a show of nearly an hour.
