Way back when, EverythingTori mentioned that Tori would be on BBC 6 Music’s 6 Mix on a date to be determined. Well, the date is finally coming and it’s Friday, October 27th at 10:00 PM BST (5:00 PM EDT/2:00 PM PDT). From the show’s details:
Tonight Tori chooses records by artists she thinks have stood the test of time. Important artists that no one can deny will always be there including the Cocteau Twins and Led Zeppelin. She also includes an exclusive remix of one of her own tracks never been played before.

Gaelle, Eduardo, and Vasilis Bibas tell us that the book also includes “Pages from a Journal Found in a Shoebox Left in a Greyhound Bus Somewhere Between Tulsa, Oklahoma and Louisville, Kentucky,” the short story Neil wrote for the Scarlet’s Walk tourbook.

The front reads “Recovering Christian” and the back sports a figure of a nurse with the words “Tori Amos” and “Still Recovering.” Thanks to Marlina for spotting this one!

Beth Winegarner — journalist, author, and one of Undented’s very own managing editors — has just released a book that will be of interest to music lovers in general and Toriphiles in particular. Titled Read The Music: Essays On Sound (a tip o’ the hat to Kate Bush, that), the first two essays focus entirely on Tori’s music, with threads of her influence continuing to be woven through several essays that follow.
