In Search Of The Lost Chord
I’m afraid I was distracted by the beautiful music in this week’s schedule, while Rob was telling me what the theme was so I may not have picked it up right… Something about some Eels causing havoc in Susan’s House. Not quite sure what was going on, but Caroline tried to maintain the Status Quo and The Police were looking for someone called Roxanne. This week it’s “Girls, Girls, Girls” on “In Search of the Lost Chord”.

The A-Z of 1958: C
Yesterday, I wandered down to the Music Archives in Sub-Basement 15, to check in on our Head Archivist and see if he wanted a cup of tea. When I knocked on the Archive door, it immediately swung open and there stood Stereo Bene with an excited grin on his face. “You’ll never believe it!” he exclaimed, “I’ve found even more great tunes for the B episode of the A-Z of 1958! I was up all night, but I found them. It’s finally complete.”
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen someone as happy in my entire life… which is why I felt so bad having to inform him that we already played the B episode last week, and that I needed the C episode within 24 hours. Poor guy. Anyway, here it is, and it’s a cracker!

5am, 9am, 1pm, 5pm, 9pm, 1am
Paul of Sound: Jonas Munk
Odense, Denmark was the birthplace of fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen; the scene of the murder of Canute IV of Denmark, the last Viking king; and since the 6th of April 1989, the city has been twinned with Funabashi, Japan. Odense is also the birthplace of Jonas Munk, the subject of today’s show. You can just forget all those other bits if you want.

The Movie Music Hour
We just cracked open another crate from the Clonline Radio Archive that we bought from a shady sounding DoneDeal ad in November. Inside, we found a tonne of shows.

Transmission: 1977
Ralph Mexico was out for a spin in his time machine last weekend and accidentally landed in 1977. He had been looking for 1997, to warn Marc Roberts that he would need to really pull out all the stops to win that year’s Eurovision. Luckily for us, Ralph accidentally typed in the wrong year and discovered this treasure trove of music. Unluckily for Marc and his fans, he never got to meet Ralph, and wound up losing out to the UK entry from Katrina and The Waves.
