PMB182: The Rolling Stones – England’s Oldest Hit Makers (Buddy Greco, Eric Hine, The Shadows of Knight, Wee Ginga Yin, Siniestro Total, The Termites, Blinky (Sondra Williams), Beefeaters, Sandie Shaw)

PMB182 The Rolling Stones - England's Oldest Hit MakersWe’re not afraid to visit the same very specific topic twice, dear listener, so having marked the 50th anniversary of the formation of The Rolling Stones back in PMB074, on this week’s show we mark the 50th anniversary of the release of their eponymous debut album.

We’ve chosen to do this by attempting a track-for-track cover of (most of) the tracks on the original album through the various media of lounge music, minimal synth, Galician punk and ukulele to name but a few.

PMB181 Godzilla Welcomes You To Monster IslandIt’s all zilla and no filla on this week’s show as we celebrate both the centenary of Japanese musical maestro Akira Ifukube, who wrote most of the music for Toho Studio’s series of Godzilla movies, and ‘reboot’ this year of the Godillza franchise.
