Music of Margo

When I was dreaming up Margo in the mid-1980s, I made cassette tapes – mixtapes – of the music I loved and thought would be heard on Margo. Two of them (Selections From A Sleezian Juke Box and Beach Blanket Margo) were derived almost solely from my collection of 45 rpm records. Popular Music of Margo and A Night In Heliopolis were composed of cuts from more current album music of the 1980s. This music inspired me as I imagined Margoin musicians doing covers of these songs. If you remember this music then you will get a taste of what is heard on the airwaves of Margo.

 

The Storyteller’s Creed

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge,

That myth is more potent than history,

That dreams are more powerful than facts,

That hope always triumphs over experience,

That laughter is the only cure for grief,

And I believe that love is stronger than death.
