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).

We’ll also be fea­tur­ing an excel­lent Scot­tish folk album called The Rail­way by Hamish Napi­er.

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