Broadcast 21st February 2016
Inspiration failed to descend for me, and our friend Janeerah helped out with a set of electronic music featuring Vangelis. His full name is Evangelos Odysseas Papathanassiou, and he first become known in Europe as part of an all-Greek prog rock band Aphrodite’s Child (which had Demis Roussos on vocals) before going solo around 1973.
Vangelis plays almost all the instruments on his albums and he also composes all the tracks, despite being unable to read or write music. He composes on the keyboard, recording to a multi-track tape machine, and recording the ideas as they come to him, using many different keyboards for each idea.
Edison was once again away from his mixing desk and AlanDJ broadcast the show
