In 1872, Samuel Butler published a kind of utopian satire that he titled Erewhon. Butler wanted the name to be "nowhere" spelled backward but realized it would be hard to pronounce, so he transposed the"h" and the "w" to be "AIR - a - wan." It's an odd book, but the title makes an admirable theme for  this podcast. All of the songs in the show will be about places that do not exist in our real, three dimensional world - and you might be surprised by just how many of those songs there are.
