The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman


Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone is one of Radio’s treasures and tonight he played this unbelievable Radio Musical by Sparks.

Words cannot describe how extraordinary an event this was.  Sparks are weirder than weird.  Perfect for the Freakzone.  But their music is utterly beguiling and this ‘opera’ is a new creative high for them.

Transfixing.  Check it out on BBC iplayer.

Arise Sir Stuart.

  1. All hail the Maels! I’m a huge Sparks fan and I’ve been listening to this Musical for a while now on my MP3 player and it’s yet to grab me. Some interesting bits, but not enough Spark-iness for me.


Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
