Transports of Delight

Today’s programme features music about “Trains and Boats and Planes” — songs and pieces concerning or including mechanical transportation — from Coronation Scot to Pink Floyd’s Point Me At The Sky (and Flanders & Swann’s Transport of Delight of course).

There are some slightly unusual modes of transportation in there too: Klaus Badelt’s marvellous music for the remake of The Time Machine is in there for example.

As you can imagine, then, there is quite a range of genres and eras covered in today’s programme, and some of the transitions may well be bizarre: let’s just hope that they work out!

The illustration is from a Living Era album which I don’t actually have in my library, although I have most, if not all, of the content.


Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin. If you are in the United States or Canada, please click here to launch the Stream Licensing player. You can also listen via TuneIn. Or simply click here to use your favourite player, if your browser is configured to do so.

Today’s programme is also being broadcast experimentally on an HE-AAC v2 stream at 88kb/s here, which should give you an even higher quality audio experience. You’ll need a player that can handle this format, such as VLC.
