Meat & Potatoes #26

Aired Sunday April 3rd, 2011.

Lots of booky content on the show this past week.  I talked about reading Yevgeny Zamyatin's novel We, an early example of dystopian fiction that was a big influcence on George Orwell's 1984.  I also discussed Mikhail Bulgakov's science fiction work, The Fatal Eggs, which tells what happens when a mad scientist's discovery of a new "ray of life" falls into incompetent, bureaucratic hands.  I then read the first chapter from Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, one of my favourite novels of all time.  It tells the story of the devil's visit to Moscow one spring in the late 1920s--hence the set of 'devil music' that made it on to the show (songs 14,15 and 16 below).
