Before GoogleMaps, London cab drivers were the guides to city; rigorously drilled in travel routes, converted into easy-to-remember rhymes.

Sunday, ResonanceFM, an Internet radio station run by London musicians will – sort of – stand this idea on its head with a performance of “If the Route: The Great Learning of London” (a taxi opera), a recitation of many of those rhymes. The piece is being rebroadcast through May.

The idea of turning a famous gnomic learning device drenched in London cockney slang into an piece of spoken art strikes us as pretty neat. Here’s Resonance’s Sunday schedule so you can figure out the timing.

Enjoy, it’s today’s HotSpot.
