M is for....


Monkees, Mother Earth, Moroder and possibly even Manfred Mann

After a bank holiday break, Piley and I are installed back in the Chance Radio bunker for the 13th instalment of the Podrophonic Alphabet - the Letter M. There'll be a couple of pop quizzes, Piley's Newsround - and Fi Jacobs from The Railway Hotel joins us for a Railway Round-up. Dig in here from 9.


The single edit of a magical Moroder moment..

Giorgio Moroder - From Here To Eternity

Spot the sample? Which Essex band borrowed this horn riff for their own use? And is it my grizzled old ears or do the Manfred's sound frighteningly like The Charlatans here..

It was the Joe 90 one for me - worra car. We'll be talking about other music motors on Podrophenia tonight. The Banana Splits buggies, Prince's Purple Rain chopper and the Fabs Submarine.
