Main: Space Music — featuring RMI

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.
