We are always alert when cosmic alignments suggest themes for the show. Of late we have found ourselves enjoying that classic Gershon Kingsley tune, Popcorn, and in particular some moustache-twirling interpretations of said tune. We thought it therefore appropriate to devote this week's show to some of these extraordinary arrangements.
As well as all the hot buttery goodness of popcorn, we also have a couple of tracks from Italian library music supremo, Giampiero Boneschi, some Enoch Light, some Bruce Haack re-imagined by Brother Cleve and possibly the first example of chiptune on vinyl (or at least flexi-disc) from all the way back in 1983.
This show also sees the start of an occasional series whereby we drag our listeners one at a time into the Moonbase Experimental Lounge of Music (The M.E.L.M.) and subject them to various auditory and psychological tests. After which they are allowed to dedicate a track on the show to a loved one. This week sees the appearance of that much-loved long time listener, Squig.
MC Zirconium for his part tells us it is the largest of scaly animals, and it has the following nine characteristics. Its head is like a camels, its horns like a deer's, its eyes like a hare's, its ears like a bull's, its neck like an iguana's, its belly like a frog's, its scales like those of a carp, its paws like a tiger's, and its claws like an eagle's. It has nine times nine scales, it being the extreme of a lucky number.
