Description

This episode, at least the first third or so, is themed to commemorate a certain upcoming astronomical event - try and see if you can guess what it is. First we have the late Michael Garrison, long-time denizen of Bend, Oregon, with a track from his 1982 album Eclipse, then we hear from, in order, Moon Duo, Sun Araw, Radar Men From The Moon, Sun City Girls, Moon Phantoms, and Sunn O))). Figure it out? Write down the answer on a 3"x5" notecard and mail it to:
The Space Program, 123 Space Avenue, Space, SP 99999.

Later we hear from Pikacyu*Makoto, which thankfully has nothing to do with Pokemon, but is a project of Pika from Afrirampo and Kawabata Makoto from Acid Mothers Temple. We also hear a new track from Housewives, a This Heat-inspired kraut-noise ensemble, and an excerpt from the ever-prolific Sula Bassana's soundtrack to a movie titled, curiously, "The Ape Regards His Tail" (a notable characteristic of apes is that they have no tails).
