Strange Stories UK, Cleft Chin murder at Hammersmith London.

Strange Stories UK, Cleft Chin murder at Hammersmith London.

As it has been three weeks since I posted, I decided to make a podcast, write it and post it as quickly as I could. I did not know what story to make a podcast about but I had some photographs of documents that I had taken at the National Archives and choose the shortest one, the one with least photos  to see how quickly I could write and post. The storey I chose, I original thought obscure, but found that a film had been made about it in 1990 called Chicago Joe and the Showgirl starring Kiefer Sutherland , Emily Lloyd and Patsy Kensit. Then I found out that George Orwell had commented on the murder. However, there did not seem to be any podcasts on what was called the 'Cleft chin murder'.
It took me 14 hours from start to finish to make this podcast, researching, writing and recording. That is why I am calling it a Punk Podcast. I did this while listening to the first night of the Glastonbury festival! I enjoyed the Jesus and Mary Chain set.
The characters in this podcast are shallow, obsessed with image and Hollywood films. Their lives are cheap and they think that life is cheap. In recent podcasts it has been suggested that it is easy to get away with a murder during a time of war, however these murderers were too incompetent to take advantage of wartime. As usual it is low fi and I hesitate over words etc..
