    Astronaut music..

    https://www.deseretnews.com/top/3289/0/Going-to-the-moon-Heres-an-astronaut-playlist-courtesy-of-NASAs-early-missions.html Here's a music-filled article about "space music" sent from "ground control" to Gemini and Apollo astronauts. (And, sometimes, from space to "ground control.") Who is this "David Bowie" and "Space Oddity"? At least one astronaut onThe International Space Station played a solo guitar version of "Space Oddity," so it did get on the "Near Earth Orbit Hit Parade.";)

    Proto-Walkman on the Moon?

    The year is 1969, and Apollo 10 is in orbit around the Moon. What do Astronauts do for music 240,000 miles from Earth? They put a Compact cassette tape in a Sony TC-50 and play Pop music instead of listening to "the sounds of silence" as they enter "the dark side of the Moon." "Techmoan" imported this ancient piece of audio tech from Japan and did his best to restore it to "playing condition." Did he succeed? What does this "run-of-the-mill" tape recorder have to do with the Sony Walkman? Play the video for answers to these burning questions. Also, the "Moan family puppets" talk about "setting foot" hither and yon.;)
  6. "Techmoan" has Something Of Great Importance on his workbench. A recording of the July 20, 1969 Apollo 11 Moon landing audio+ rescued from a library's "clearing out the rubbish" campaign, along with a Space Age (1969) Philips 22 GF 303 portable record player, aka "Philips UFO." Both items might be found on eBay, though the record player is an "expensive collector's item." If you do find the recording, "play it like it's 1969" this Saturday to commemorate "One small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind." (Watch the "Capricorn One" video, instead, if you think "it was all done on a CIA movie set.";)
  7. Can anyone help identify this song? https://soundcloud.com/wzbc-radio/mystery-song-from-cassette Sounds like the title would be Let's Get Away From It All, Tonight - probably from mid-to-late 1980s - industrial, dance, electro, EDM - maybe British or Belgian - could just be from a 12" or club hit

    Bernard, Marius and Jerry

    Submitted for your approval, three themes for TV and a movie, by three very different composers. Bernard Herrmann set the mood, Marius Constant's themes were turned into a Signature, and Jerry Golsmith "painted a widescreen" versiom for a movie. Without these musical themes/compositions, "Rodman Serling" would be remembered only as "a writer of screenplays in the 'Golden Age' of live TV."

    "American Rhapsody"

    It' amazing what a YouTube search for "Space Race" will lead to...down the rabbit hole, of course! Submitted for your approval is an artist/historian that will take you through U.S. history from The Seven Years War to Donald Trump. I can guess how Freddie Mercury would have viewed this song parody video. ("Weird Al"? Who's that?;)

    In keeping with "The Space Race" showing up on TV, here's an early Rock tune that had dancers "going out of this world."
  11. Submitted for your approval, the wildest ride on a passenger train ever. Starting with Rodman Serling, the "Hollywood Graveyard" shows you where "the creative people" behind and in front of the movie camera ended up. Warning: this is a very "black-and-white" subject.;)

    "Armstrong" by John Stewart

    Someone had to write a folk song about this. I still prefer Bowie's "Space Oddity" though.

    "Armstrong" by John Stewart

    Public TV and "public tv-like" stations such as the Smithsonian channel have been playing videos celebrating the U.S. space race to the moon. Submitted for your approval, two versions of a song that celebrates "One small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind."
  22. Knockin' At Your Back Door is an awesome song. Deep Purple is one of the great bands of all time.

    Slash ,Chicago,Blue Oyster Cult,The Cars,Head East. That's all l have seen! l really hope l can see more than 10 concerts one day!
  24. These days, the unusual in daily life is captured in cellphone videos promptly uploaded to YouTube and other websites as a matter of course. But in the 1950's, telephones were at home or on the wall, and motion picture cameras were huge things, and "Life war Serious." But, once in a while, when something absurd happened, and you were a flummoxed witness, up pops a camera crew and "you're on 'Candid Camera!" The UK Candid Camera boffins took the "stiff upper lip" off TV back then, in style. Presented for your approval, "50 years of Candid Camera in the UK," where mayhem rules.;) '

    National RX-F333 Triple Cassette

    I know your expertise on this. I must say we should have an online discussion on this. Writing only comments will close the discussion straight away! And will restrict the benefits from this information. fireboy and watergirl
  29. Hi all, I heard a song on a classic rock station the other day. I liked it a lot, have never heard it before but the lead male singer sounded familiar. I'm sorry that all I remember is "morning sun" being sung through out the song...I'm guessing it's the title or maybe part of the title of the song, but I could be wrong on that. I googled and it's not the Robblie Williams song, I'm guessing it's an oldie. If anyone could help that would be great, thanks! I know it's not much to go by...I had a few glasses of wine at the time and can't remember the other lyrics...
