PMB264 The Rainbow Collection: PurpleYes, it’s the long awaited return of our cut-out-and-keep Rainbow Collection with the almost last show in the series.

As we approach the end of the visible spectrum, we arrive at plumptious purple, with a show of fake 80s, very gentle Japanese heavy metal, radioactive Russian pop, bucolic militarism, a sprinkling of percussive atonality and we leave you with some highly colourful edutatinment.

Our next show is the penultimate edition of the Rainbow Collection (remember that, dear listener?) and is all about the colour purple. As a little teaser for that, here’s an unexpectedly blistering version of Purple Rain by the recently departed Purple One. This extraordinary version is played by South Korean zither specialist Luna Lee:

We recommend taking a look at her YouTube channel as there’s plenty more where that came from.

Thanks to Kev Oyston for alerting us to this important information.
