PMB245: On the Buses (Eardrop’s Journeys, Peter Herbolzheimer, The New Mastersounds, Helen Gene Purdy, Saka Acquaye and his African Ensemble, Ferrante & Teicher, Piero Umiliani, Kazushi Yamaura, Bert Kaempfert Swing Band, Dodo)
Continuing our seemingly obsessive interest in modes of transport – and to show that we do listen to you, dear listener – we present this week a selection of tunes on the subject of bus travel, a theme indirectly requested by our Canadian ambassador.
There are plenty of stops along the way as we travel via New Zealand, Germany (two stops), Switzerland, the US, Italy, Japan, Ghana and, most exotic of all, Leeds in the UK.
