Imelda Marcos, Dictator of Taste?

I'm posting this on behalf of another member. He claims (quote)

Cannot do link on Board as forgot my username…

which is very worrying as his username is his actual name...

Anyway, he wants to tell you about a programme on UK BBC Radio 4 on Thursday 13th Jan at 11.30am.

During her time as First Lady of the Philippines, Imelda Marcos was an enthusiastic patroness of the arts. She has now become an object of inspiration to musicians and artists across the globe, with Imelda-inspired works including an elaborate song cycle, photographs, a film and a musical.

Mark Ellen explores the emergence of Imelda Marcos as an unlikely modern icon as David Byrne, Norman Cook and other artists and musicians inspired by her life consider why Imelda has mutated into a modern muse and whether she deserves such broadly sympathetic treatment.

There always seemed to be something sinister about her, that I couldn't quite delineate, but girlfriend wore some truly fly fashions.
