Did you know that the United Nations has pronounced 12 April to be the International Day Of Human Space Flight? Well now you do... And tonight there's a healthy serving of space-rock and other astrononomical meandering to go with it... You may wish to check out some of the great pictures, news and information on the NASA website while you're listening.
Also tonight: some more music from the new CD from Sydney band Domino - "Where the Desert Meets the Sea".
And on the eve of the gig tomorrow in Adelaide by Jon Anderson - there is some music from Jon himself and the band Yes.
