On the show this week we pay a slightly belated tribute to one of the giants of space age bachelor pad music, Russ Garcia, who sadly passed away towards the end of 2011. Garcia had a very illustrious career as an arranger and orchestrator but he is probably best loved for his 1959 album Fantastica which was one of the first space-themed lounge records.
As well as plenty of music from Russ Garcia we also have lots of artists and releases new to us at the Moonbase including, most excitingly, a track from the brand new debut album from friend of the show, Sarah Angliss, and her band Spacedog.
