The music concept for this week is cool sounds for hot water or smooth tunes for soaking or whatever most makes you think of host Charles Adrian singing along to soul singers like Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding in his warm winter-time bath. The books, meanwhile, are a glorious mixed bag, taking us from 1980’s childcare back to 1930’s housekeeping via Cathar history and ancient Arabic teaching on lesbianism.

The Glory Of The Perfumed Garden by Shaykh Nafwazi is also discussed in Page One 147.

Diary Of A Provincial Lady by E.M. Delafield is also discussed in Page One 126.
