Main: Space Music — featuring RMI

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 5 November, 2016

Today we present a programme of music on the theme of Space, and while we’ll be crossing a lot of genres today, with everything from classic electronica to lounge to rock to TV and movie soundtracks to weird 1960s astrology discs, we’ll be featuring the work of a rather overlooked British band, Radio Massacre International (RMI), who despite the somewhat forbidding name are the leading British exponents of what is sometimes called the “Berlin School” of electronic music — with colleagues including the likes of Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream.

RMI comprises Steve Dinsdale (Keyboards, Electronics, Drums) Duncan Goddard (Keyboards, Electronics, Bass) and Gary Houghton (Guitar, Keyboards). RMI have released a very large number of albums since 1993 and we’ll be featuring just a couple of them today: Time And Motion (2010) and Eavesdropping (2013). The tracks are fairly long so we’ll be playing one every couple of hours. To find out more about the band, click here.

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 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.
