PMB186: All Over The World Cup (Ray Martin, Deodato, Stu Phillips, KPM All Stars, The Tony Hatch Orchestra, Edmundo Ros, Ivor Cutler, Sweep, Eddie Warner, Willie Henderson And The Soul Explosions, Ali Haider)

PMB186: All Over The World CupWe always enjoy being fashionably late to a party so one week after the World Cup came to an end we thought the timing was perfect for a football special. This gives us a chance to play some of our favourite sporting TV themes (many of which were written by KPM genius Keith Mansfield) including one by this year’s 75th birthday boy Tony Hatch (much more of whom next week). There’s also a particularly moving rendition of Nessun Dorma, popularised by the BBC in their coverage of Italia ’90.

We should make it clear that neither of us know the first thing about football, though this will probably become fairly obvious as you listen to the show.

PMB185: Now That’s What I Don’t Call the 80s 2 (Oxykitten, Rich Menga, Hunter Complex, mitch murder, Norm Chambers, Suzanne Ciani, James Last, Hirut Bekele, Peachy Pixel8, Büromaschinen)

PMB185 Now That's What I Don't Call the 80s 2By far our most popular episode to date is PMB128: Now That’s What I Don’t Call the 80s. We have no idea why that might be but in an attempt to re-create the huge success of that show, we thought it time to collect together another selection of music which sounds as though it could have been recorded 30 years ago. To that end, we bring you new/old releases from Oxykitten, Rich Menga, Hunter Complex, mitch murder and Norm Chambers.

We do also have some music actually recorded in the 1980s but we hope the strong legal defence mounted in the course of this week’s show justifying their inclusion proves convincing in the court of public opinion.
