The Story

 


Deep of the Night is the story of late night DJ Johnny Deep. He is the midnight to 4am man at KLUV 98.6 (a radio station that plays love songs 24hrs a day 365 days a year). It is the story of the interaction between him, his late night listeners and his environment. This is a story of a city and a man, all one small step behind the rhythm of life.

It is the story of Ramona, a tragic heroine. It is the story of Craig, Ramona’s earstwhile boyfriend, a nasty piece of work. It is the story of Gus the security guard who feels and fears his own mortality. It is the story of Carol the late night weather girl who is the only one in time with the rhythm of life. It is the story of Johnny’s late night listeners and everyone’s just slightly out of tune.

 

It is a rainy, melencolic night, all radios are tuned by some unknown force to KLUV 98.6. American poet Henry David Theroux said “that 98% of all people live their lives in quiet desperation”.

Johnny is the voice of this quiet desperation. Johnny articulates the mood and feeling of it. He speculates on love, on longing, and the quiet hope people want to have for those unvoiced feelings of emotional claustrophobia that we all feel. Deep of the Night is above all a mystery, a story of love and death, and who did what to whom.
