A collection of Baroque and Renaissance madrigals including Alfred Deller, and poetry of Sir Thomas Wyatt, John Suckling, Robert Herrick, Anonymous, Andrew Marvell, Blake, Yeats, etc. Read by Everett Frost, Mitchell Harding, Katherine Calkin, Faith Wilding, and David Cloud. The program begins with a festive celebration live outside the KPFK building for welcoming in May. Description in folio: "David (is very stubborn) Cloud and Everett (still tracking the Lost Angels) Frost are joined by Mitchell (Ch'ien-the creative) Harding and Kathy (from the Holly Wood) Calkin and a medley of Pacifica mischievers for a Mayday dalliance. A spring Renaissance of poetry and music of love and seduction. A loaf of bread, a jug of wine, invite your lover and picnic by your radio." Stereo. Note on box: This is the dirtiest program ever aired on a Pacifica Station and it does not need a sensitivity disclaimer.
