Past themes have included Travel, Telephones, Made In Scotland, Dreams, Space, Instrumentals, Cash, Colours of the Rainbow, The Weather, Holidays, The Elements, Loose Connections, Paisley Buddies, Radio, New York, Time, The Calendar, Bond, Eurovision, Sampling, One Hit Wonders, Phil Spector, James Bond, Copycats & Covers, special Festive programmes each Christmas, as well as a 54-part “A to Z” of popular music artists. 

The programme’s title encompasses the wide range of music the listener may encounter in following the many routes and branches away from the mainstream of everyday listening .

The Current mini-series includes an Album Tracking spot, a listeners’ “Memories Are Made of Hits” spot, and a short listener-choice item of Classical music, 

Future planned mini-series include a Pot Luck ‘lucky dip’ music selection from listeners’ submissions, music from the Antipodes; music from America’s 50 States and artists and music from Canada.”
