4: numbers (for delia)

November 2nd, 2013

numbers for delia cover It’s nearly 5 years since my last podcast and nearly 50 years since the first Doctor Who and it’s theme was shown. So I journey into the world of ‘De La Russe’, more well known as Delia Derbyshire the co-composer of that theme and many other BBC Radiophonic works.

Here I specialise with the rarer spoken word and radio works she did in the hope that the BBC some day releases this music properly (please sign the petition if you liked this podcast!). Thanks to Martin Guy and many other DD fans for the audio clips that otherwise would have made this podcast impossible, and those people whose documentaries I mixed in: Various spoken word clips unless otherwise noted:

  • Kara Blake – The Delian Mode documentary
  • Associated Rediffusion – Alchemists of Sound
  • Jarvis Cocker’s 6Music interview with Pete Kember
  • BBC Radio Scotland interview with Delia, 1997
  • Sculptress of Sound radio documentary
  • The Legend of Hell House
