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.
