Well dear listener, that moment has arrived – we have reached the 200th edition of Project Moonbase!
We would like to take this opportunity to mop away a tear and thank all of our loyal listeners who have stuck with us over the years, through yodelling and whistling. We would like to particularly thank those of you who were kind enough to suggest tracks for this edition of the show – and also those who respond to our invitation to call the hotline with messages of support.
For this week’s bumper edition of the show, we have paired up some of your and some of our favourite tracks in a series of face-offs. We leave it to you, dear listener, to decide which is the better version using an increasingly unmanageable collection of hashtags.
We think doubling up tracks like this works rather well. The question is, do you agree? #DualDuel
