Playing tracks by
Jean-jacques perrey, Neal Hefti, The Advisory Circle, Rick Jones, Florian Zabach and more.
Prompted by the inclusion of an owl-themed track on the new Spacedog album and a seagull-themed track on Jonny Trunk’s recently released collection of music and songs used in Fingerbobs, we thought it an appropriate moment to celebrate all things avian by making birds the theme of this week’s show. This is part of our ongoing exploration of the animal kingdom. If you have a particular favourite branch of the evolutionary tree or if there is a genus or species you are particularly keen on, do let us know and we will do our best to make it the subject of a future show.
