PMB200: Dual DuelWell 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

The Muppets: Pöpcørn | The Swedish Chef plays Popcorn


We play this very track in pmb200: Dual Duel. As we mention, it is perhaps more effective visually than in it’s audio form. So here it is, for your eyes. Trained professional, The Swedish Chef in all his glory.

PMB199: Where There’s Muck There’s Brass (The Button Down Brass, Tätärä, Sam Pilafian, Peter Herbolzheimer, Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra, Shake Keane, Alan Hawkshaw, The Brass Menagerie, Dick Schory, Doc Severinsen, Klaus Weiss Orchestra)

PMB199: Where There's Muck There's BrassIt’s time to purse your lips and blow, dear listener, as this week on the show it’s all about the brass. Yes, we have everything from trumpets to tubas, trombones to French Horns and we even have a bit of jazz flugelhorn.

We’re also delighted to welcome back to the Moonbase for one week only our London correspondent Space Disco Jeff. We’ve been experiencing some technical issues with our collection of glitter balls so we called him back up for their annual maintenance. We’re glad to report that after his meticulous attention to detail they’re all fully operational again.

This Brass episode forms part of a series of metallic episodes, namely: Silver (apples of the moon) and Gold. Should we include more metals or mix in a few other elements? Listeners, have your say.
