The American Experimental Tradition in Music
As America found its feet after the War of Independence, so its creative artists began to forge an American way. The tradition of experiment and innovation has now become a hallmark of the American scene.
Natalie Wheen joins in the fun with the music and comments of some of the major players, including Pauline Oliveros , Lou Harrison , Henry Brant , Kyle Gann , Alvin Lucier , Carl Stone , La Monte Young, Terry Riley and Robert Ashley , and with archive recordings of John Cage ,
Henry Cowell , Morton Feldman , Bernard Herrmann and Harry Partch. Producer Natalie Wheen

BBC Radio 3, 25 October 1998 17.45

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
