PMB105: Great Railway Journeys (Sohail Rana, Bernard Estardy, Les Baxter, Vernon Elliott, Ken Griffin, Henry Mancini, Ananda Shankar, R.D. Burman, I Am Robot And Proud, Veronika Fischer)

PMB105 Great Railway JourneysThanks to our listener in Germany, Arkan Ok, for suggesting this week’s theme of railways. It’s given us an excuse to dig out some steam-powered gems and no less than three train-themed tunes from Indian composers. There’s plenty of organ work, some German disco and we also get to hear Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin chuffing away to their hearts’ content.
