More Information

Meat Factory Ear Worms

A young man is trapped in a dead end job in a meat factory and the monotony of process line slaughter is unbearable.

Music keeps him going, specifically the songs that get stuck in his head, which he calls ear worms.

This is a story of endurance - and of how to make it through the day, despite all the challenges - wonderful listening.

March 2011

"The Curious Ear" is produced by Ronan Kelly curiousear@rte.ie
