Episode 132 (Ida Lewis)
The Memory Palace is a proud member of Radiotopia.
We hear Waltz from the score to Angels & Insects.
Movements IV and II from David Liptak’s Serenade for Alto Sax and Strings.
A bit of Violin Solo no. 1 from Peter Broderick.
Some of Zucht 2 from Machienfabrik.
A bit of Origami Tulips from Lullatone.
Unseen Forces from Justin Walter.
Midnight Moon from Annalisa Tornfelt and Gideon Freudman
Ida Lupino from Paul Bley’s Changes album from 1965.
And Lost Fur (Reprise) from the score to Where the Wild Things Are.
Many of my favorite things I read for this piece were contemporary newspaper tributes upon her death in 1911. They’re easy to find.
By far the most useful thing I read was Lenore Skomal’s *The Lighthouse Keeper’s Daughter: The Remarkable True Story of American Heroine, Ida Lewis. *It’s very well researched and highly readable.
