Somehow, dear listener, one of the themes we’ve neglected to cover until now is that of our dwelling place, yes – The Moon! To redress this embarrassing imbalance, the show this week is pure unadulterated moonliness, featuring the sounds of, amongst others, Siingapore pop, Argentinian retro-futurism, German pianism, French novelty singing and Norwegian chiptune.
This also gives us another perfect opportunity (as if we needed one) to play a track from William Shatner’s latest magnum opus and the show closes with a track from our patron saint, Jean-Jacques Perrey.
