BBC Radiophonic Workshop

I went to the gym today and listened to a great Radio Clash podcast on my iPod. It celebrates the 50th Birthday of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and is a really interesting listen. So download it here and give it a go.

I was surprised by how good most of the stuff sounded. And impressed by the amount of work that went into preparing the tapes etc. I had (still have, actually) a reel-to-reel recorder, I know how tedious and fiddly splicing tapes is. But in the end, splicing is easy - making music isn't.
