Bonnie & Tom lament the long lost radio show "Love Song Dedications", and in particular, the dulcet tones of Richard Mercer and his engagement with lovestruck or lovetorn individuals. The show ran every weeknight between 1997 and 2013, across the East Coast of Australia. Has the art of the love song dedication been lost? Do we need it? This series follows Bonnie & Tom on their quest to find the voice of the Love God, and exactly what made him special - along the way, they'll talk to the experts of love songs in their city. || The Missing Richard Mercer podcast is made in conjunction with the theatre production, "Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer)", Tom Hogan & Bonnie Leigh-Dodds, as part of Ten Tonne Sparrow. Original music by Tom Hogan. For more information, visit http://missingrichardmercer.com

everything you love about theatre and music journalism
The premise of this show may sound odd, but bear with it. Like the best theatre you've seen, the sort you were sceptical about walking in, and singing the praises of walking out, it's pushing the boundaries of what a podcast can be.
