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.
