Today is the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, the mission that brought mankind to the moon. As we look back on this phase of space exploration, what songs come to mind? Can you think of recordings that include the voices of NASA's mission control or songs about space exploration? We'll countdown to a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

David Bowie "Space Oddity"

Kate Bush "Rocket Man"

One Eskimo "Astronauts"

Public Service Broadcasting "Go!"
