Playlist - 12 April 2014

53 years ago, on the 12th of April 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first human to complete an orbit of the Earth.  The United Nations has proclaimed the 12th day of April to be the International Day Of Human Space Flight, and so, in tonight's edition of Seasons Of Change, there's a healthy serving of space-rock and anything else that fits from Australia and around the world, including classic Australian recordings from Cybotron, Lobby Loyde and Spectrum. There's also a little more this week from the reissued classical rock album by Rainbow Theatre. And it's happy birthday this week to the terrific Sonja Kristina (singer with the band Curved Air). You may wish to check out some of the great pictures, news and information on the NASA website while you're listening.
