Afternoon Drive with John Maytham
The curious case of the absent dead Englishman

The curious case of the absent dead Englishman

18 October 2021 6:05 PM

Guest: Don Pinnock

Don Pinnock joins John to retell the curious story of 'the absent dead Englishman'. 
He describes a stranger-than-fiction story that he has told in collaboration with Peter Slingsby, an adventurer heralded  for the creation of detailed maps of the unchartered parts of the Cederberg. 
Carved on a stone beneath a Celtic cross are the words “In sacred memory of Graham Vinicombe Winchester Clowes, Lieutenant, First Batt., Gordon …'
Next to an ancient and now deceased gum tree on a lonely road over the Pakhuis Pass in the Cederberg is a Boer War grave beside which a sister mourned her brother for 30 years without knowing it was empty.

Why we are nostalgic about music we listened to when we were young

1 December 2021 6:07 PM

Guest: Dr Kelly Jakubowski

If you are wondering why you are nostalgic about music you listened to when you were young, a recent study by academics at the University of Durham in England might have the answer.
They found that music is closely linked with  both autobiographic memory and emotion, and particularly with positive emotional memories that have social themes.
Also, that this music-related reminiscence bump peaked at around the age of 14 with songs popular when participants  in the study were at this age evoking the most memories overall.
