The original artist was one of the most underrated musicians of our time and could write lyrics that were weird, wacky, quirky and excitable at times. The inspiration for today’s shadow covers all those bases and comes from a taxi ride in Cuba that involved a kidnapping.

Today’s shadow artist was a recent Live Lunch visitor and performer at WTMD. He captures the spirit of desperation and muted hopefulness quite nicely.  Somebody get me out of this, indeed!
