Today’s episode: Magnus Hirschfeld and his life’s work.
Guest Host: Jaz @hotdogjazmin on tumblr & instagram
Today’s featured song: Wenn die beste fraudin- Marlene Dietrich and Margo Lion Berlin (1921).
First heard in the caberet ‘Es Liegt in Der Luft’ ( It’s In The Air) written by Marcellus Schiffer and Micha Spoliansky. The caberet premiered at The Comedy on The Kurfüstendam on 15 May 1928, a revue featuring 24 short acts all taking place in a Berlin department store. Our featured song is about two best girlfriends. The song became a hit in Berlin lesbian communities of the time. Tune in to hear Jaz and I fumble through it in an English translation!
