People are constantly doing things to improve themselves, to help make themselves a little smarter (or make themselves think that they’re smarter). Sometimes music can be part of a self-improvement. That’s what Wendy Carlos’ Switched-On Bach was for Graeme; as the revolutionary electronic music album started the a-little-too-serious teenaged Graeme on an excursion into the wider world of classical music.

Unfortunately, Switched-On Bach isn’t on Spotify but our Spotify Playlist has been updated for Season 3 so check back to find albums from later episodes.
