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.

PMB185: Now That’s What I Don’t Call the 80s 2
By far our most popular episode to date is PMB128: Now That’s What I Don’t Call the 80s. We have no idea why that might be but in an attempt to re-create the huge success of that show, we thought it time to collect together another selection of music which sounds as though it could have been recorded 30 years ago. To that end, we bring you new/old releases from Oxykitten, Rich Menga, Hunter Complex, mitch murder and Norm Chambers.
We do also have some music actually recorded in the 1980s but we hope the strong legal defence mounted in the course of this week’s show justifying their inclusion proves convincing in the court of public opinion.

PMB184: Frozen Solid 
Inspired by what is supposedly the highest-grossing animation film ever made, we bring you a show themed around Disney’s Frozen, including several improvements on tracks featured in that film as well some other ice-themed tunes which we feel should really have been part of the film.

PMB183: Confusion
This week on the show, dear listener, we bring you some recent releases and arrivals at the Moonbase which have been graded APPROPRIATE by our rigorous scoring algorithms.
We have another track from the extremely wobbly new album from The Meridian Brothers, some brand new 80s spookiness from Holland, a medicinal track from concretism, Theremin Hero playing his NESKeytar, music from one of our highly talented listeners Keith Seatman, the return of show favourite Caravan by means of the Lebanon and Munich, a rare return to an album we’d previously vacuum-sealed and consigned to the archive and we close the show with a quite extraordinary piece of alternate history courtesy of James Last.
