Transports of Delight

Today’s pro­gramme fea­tures music about “Trains and Boats and Planes” — songs and pieces con­cern­ing or includ­ing, I sup­pose, 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!

Don’t miss the lat­est series of The ZBS Radio Hour, which goes out tonight at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic (19:00 and 03:00 GMT) when we con­tin­ue our two new adven­tures: At the top of the hour, it’s Jack Flan­ders in The Ah-Ha! Phe­nom­e­non; while at the half-hour it’s the deli­cious­ly satir­i­cal Steam­punk dra­ma: Lady Windermere’s Brass Fantab­u­lous.

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.
