viento de cine — 5 — sintonía pastoral

[Esta historia verídica e increíble, desclasificada de los archivos secretos del añorado programa radiofónico «Viento de Cine», da fe de que la inimitable voz del crítico Óscar Rueda llegaba a los rincones más apartados, y a las criaturas más insospechadas, de Hesperia, de Hispania, o, por usar la hermosa y castiza imagen, de la piel de toro.]


Entre la fauna de oyentes del programa radiofónico «Viento de Cine», contábase un rebaño de vacas de un pueblecito leonés.

Desde que escuchaban «Viento de Cine», decía su amo, el señor Ordóñez, las vacas daban un litro de leche más (por término medio).

Antes de acostarse, el señor Ordóñez llevaba su viejo transistor al establo, y lo colocaba entre la paja. Ellas esperaban ansiosas el momento de sintonizar. Cuando lo veían aparecer, proferían histéricos mugidos de alegría.

—No sé cómo os puede gustar esa basura —solía decirles a las bestias el señor Ordóñez, quien aseguraba no escuchar nunca el programa.


Cierta noche, las vacas del pueblecito leonés se quedaron sin «Viento de Cine». El transistor había desaparecido misteriosamente.

El señor Ordóñez se frotaba los sesos, intentando hallar alguna solución al enigma.

Días después, una de las vacas cayó enferma. El señor Ordóñez llamó al veterinario, quien, tras un concienzudo examen, diagnosticó:

—Transistor en la barriga.

El señor Ordóñez reconstruyó mentalmente los hechos. La vaca, estirando un poco el hocico, había engullido el adorado transistor.

—Acérquese —dijo el veterinario—, y escuche. Esto es asombroso.

El señor Ordóñez arrimó la oreja al vientre de la vaca, y pudo distinguir la inconfundible voz de Óscar Rueda bramando desde los intestinos del animal:

—¡Sáquenme! ¡Sáquenme de aquí!

A partir de entonces, mucha gente acudía al establo para escuchar «Viento de Cine» a través de la tripa de una vaca. Según decían los paletos, era más chic.

Bob Dylan: Biograph, Disc Three 

Up To Me
By Bob Dylan

Everything went from bad to worse, money never changed a thing
Death kept followin’, trackin’ us down, at least I heard your bluebird sing
Now somebody’s got to show their hand, time is an enemy
I know you’re long gone, I guess it must be up to me

If I’d thought about it I never would’ve done it, I guess I would’ve let it slide
If I’d lived my life by what others were thinkin’, the heart inside me would’ve died
I was just too stubborn to ever be governed by enforced insanity
Someone had to reach for the risin’ star, I guess it was up to me

Oh, the Union Central is pullin’ out and the orchids are in bloom
I’ve only got me one good shirt left and it smells of stale perfume
In fourteen months I’ve only smiled once and I didn’t do it consciously
Somebody’s got to find your trail, I guess it must be up to me

It was like a revelation when you betrayed me with your touch
I’d just about convinced myself that nothin’ had changed that much
The old Rounder in the iron mask slipped me the master key
Somebody had to unlock your heart, he said it was up to me

Well, I watched you slowly disappear down into the officers’ club
I would’ve followed you in the door but I didn’t have a ticket stub
So I waited all night ’til the break of day, hopin’ one of us could get free
When the dawn came over the river bridge, I knew it was up to me

Oh, the only decent thing I did when I worked as a postal clerk
Was to haul your picture down off the wall near the cage where I used to work
Was I a fool or not to try to protect your identity?
You looked a little burned out, my friend, I thought it might be up to me

Well, I met somebody face to face and I had to remove my hat
She’s everything I need and love but I can’t be swayed by that
It frightens me, the awful truth of how sweet life can be
But she ain’t a-gonna make me move, I guess it must be up to me

We heard the Sermon on the Mount and I knew it was too complex
It didn’t amount to anything more than what the broken glass reflects
When you bite off more than you can chew you pay the penalty
Somebody’s got to tell the tale, I guess it must be up to me

Well, Dupree came in pimpin’ tonight to the Thunderbird Café
Crystal wanted to talk to him, I had to look the other way
Well, I just can’t rest without you, love, I need your company
But you ain’t a-gonna cross the line, I guess it must be up to me

There’s a note left in the bottle, you can give it to Estelle
She’s the one you been wond’rin’ about, but there’s really nothin’ much to tell
We both heard voices for a while, now the rest is history
Somebody’s got to cry some tears, I guess it must be up to me

So go on, boys, and play your hands, life is a pantomime
The ringleaders from the county seat say you don’t have all that much time
And the girl with me behind the shades, she ain’t my property
One of us has got to hit the road, I guess it must be up to me

And if we never meet again, baby, remember me
How my lone guitar played sweet for you that old-time melody
And the harmonica around my neck, I blew it for you, free
No one else could play that tune, you know it was up to me
