STUART'S PANORAMIC WORLD     MASTERTRONIC - WHAT IF?     TREKKIE DAD AND SUPER SOPHIE

The random ramblings of a Star Trek-obsessed schools ICT Systems Manager who likes a good moan.
This is a place where I can whinge about life, and express my love of my family, 80's music, retro computer gaming (especially on my Commodore 64),
 oh and Star Trek. I'm very open with my opinions and I like a good moan. If you don't like what I say, then you might want to consider not reading this blog.

Songs that remind me of my childhood Number 43 - Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft (The Carpenters)

Yikes....  That's been a long hiatus, but I'm back with another "Song That Reminds Me Of My Childhood".  This time, we go back to when I was VERY little with The Carpenters version of "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft", originally released by them in September 1977 (I was only 7 months old), and in fact is a cover from a song by Klaatu which was used by the pirate radio station Radio Caroline as an opening song for their midnight transmissions - Thanks Wikipedia.  The original is not a bad version, but I prefer The Carpenters cover, especially the intro with All Hit Radio and the supposedly Mike Ledgerwood on the request line.

I vaguely remember first listening to this one night in the 80s when my Dad was listening to a Carpenters album, and I've loved it ever since.

It really doesn't get more 70's than this.

Hey babe, what would you like to hear?
