From the Library: Push A Little Button

Join us today for a feast of music from the 1960s and beyond, pri­mar­i­ly but not exclu­sive­ly from the UK, con­sist­ing large­ly of what we today call “lounge music” but at the time was called “Easy Lis­ten­ing” or “Mid­dle of the Road” (MoR).

We’ll be hear­ing the go-go music of Mark Wirtz, instru­men­tal arrange­ments of pop­u­lar songs by such artists as Sounds Galac­tic and tracks from top pro­duc­tion music library com­posers that were released on com­mer­cial albums — along with a num­ber of pieces that will be famil­iar to British (and per­haps oth­er) broad­cast lis­ten­ers as the theme music to pop­u­lar series.

We’ll also be play­ing the 1966 track by com­pos­er Tony Hatch and sung by his then 15-year-old sis­ter Ninette enti­tled Push A Lit­tle But­ton which gives us the title of today’s pro­gramme.

Then join us at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time (19:00 and 03:00 GMT) for the return of the ZBS Radio Hour with brand new adven­tures from Jack Flan­ders and Ruby.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with our friends at the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link:
