We attend to the story of Rapunzel: Why is she named after a garden plant? Was her foster mother a witch? What is it about an adolescent girl isolated in a tower? Her long hair – both her outward beauty and the means she allows others to come close to her. And so on. Lots to attend to here, and with musical interludes from Donovan, Berlioz, Paul Robeson, Rolling Stones, The Fantasticks, and a clip from Fractured Fairy Tales. You are invited to attend.

(First broadcast on Cambridge 105 Radio, the commercially funded community broadcaster for the city and South Cambridgeshire.)
