Discovering Scarfolk – for tourists and other trespassers by Richard Littler
If you’re anything like us, then you’ve enjoyed peering through the fence at Scarfolk and running away screaming. Well now there is nowhere to run! AAARRRHHH. What I mean is, there is a new book!
Scarfolk is a town in north-west of England, stuck in the 1970s. A hallucinogenic nightmare recollection of 70s England. An uncomfortable nostalgia for a simpler time, when communities were bonded around an unremitting fear of rabies and imminent nuclear annihilation. Sinister children, startling imagery and bewildering public information films. If you find terror-inducing drabness with a dash of Satanism, funny, then you will like this.

PMB190: Errata and Addenda
We often find shortly after we’ve done a show on a particular theme that other tracks come our way (many identified by you, dear listener) which would have been perfect for that particular show. So this week’s show is the first in an occasional series where we seek to amend and augment previously aired shows by plugging some of these gaps.

PMB189: Java Juice and the Caffeine Infusion
Having done a show all about our favourite beverage (PMB175: A Nice Cup Of Tea) we thought it only fair that we take a look at the dark side, namely coffee. So we’ve put together what we hope is a highly stimulating edition of the show, with selections by the likes of Edmundo Ros, Herbie Mann, Jean-Jacques Perrey, R. Stevie Moore and Jez Butler to name but a few.

PMB188: Vision Receiver
Time to catch up with some new releases and new arrivals at the Moonbase on this week’s show. We have a track from a new compilation which could almost have been put together with PMB in mind as it’s made up of Moog, brass and psych from a German library music label(!). We also have a track from the new OOIOO album, something historically futuristic from Nigeria, a track from possibly Poland’s answer to Peter Herbolzheimer, an imaginary horror theme and a couple of tracks by PMB theme composer Jez Butler who DJ Bongoboy had the pleasure of meeting up with a couple of weeks ago.

PMB187: Man Alive! Tony Hatch At 75
This week on the show we wish a very happy 75th birthday to pop and theme tune composer extraordinaire Tony Hatch. Of course, this does mean that Tony isn’t quite eligible for entry into the Moonbase Hall of Fame (which has a minimum age requirement of 80). But we feel sure that in the next five years Tony will produce many more classic tunes and we look forward to formally inducting him in 2019.
We’ve tried to bring you some of Tony Hatch’s less well-known compositions as well as some cover versions of classic Hatch which will hopefully result in a quizzical look or two.

PMB186: All Over The World Cup
We always enjoy being fashionably late to a party so one week after the World Cup came to an end we thought the timing was perfect for a football special. This gives us a chance to play some of our favourite sporting TV themes (many of which were written by KPM genius Keith Mansfield) including one by this year’s 75th birthday boy Tony Hatch (much more of whom next week). There’s also a particularly moving rendition of Nessun Dorma, popularised by the BBC in their coverage of Italia ’90.
We should make it clear that neither of us know the first thing about football, though this will probably become fairly obvious as you listen to the show.
