PMB024 Lunaphonic: Daphne Oram, BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Geoff Love, Hot Butter, Modular, Clara Rockmore, Sarah Angliss, John Baker, David Cain, Sun Ra, Shawn Lee, Natural Yogurt Band, Dick Mills

Great news for radiophonic enthusiasts in the next week or so as next weekend (2-3 April 2011) the Cube Cinema in Bristol will be hosting A Radiophonic Weekend featuring former members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Then on Thursday 7 April, Cafe Oto in London will be playing host to the latest Wire magazine Salon called The Sounds of New Atlantis. This is an evening dedicated to one of the founding members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Daphne Oram.

So expect to hear some music on the show this week by some of the luminaries of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop as well as tracks from new albums by Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra and the Natural Yogurt Band. We shall be hearing the results of listener Sarah Angliss’ recent examination of data sonification and we also somehow find time to celebrate the recent centenary of that virtuosa of the theremin, Clara Rockmore and bring some exciting news of interest to exotica fans.

MC Zirconium, meanwhile, will be tightening the flywheel bolts to the specified torque.
