This Friday at 15:00 tune into Secklow 105.5FM to listen to my first episode of ‘Classics From Scratch’.

This week we’re blasting off by exploring the classical music which was sent into space by NASA scientists on the Voyager Probe’s ‘Golden Record’ in 1977.

These pieces were chosen to represent the pinnacle of human cultural achievement, and some of the entries are rather surprising…

If you could send any piece of music into space, potentially to be discovered by extraterrestrial life, what would you choose?

Tune in this Friday (28th July) to find out more.
