ANDY PEEBLES , Manchester City "aficionado, writes: 1 The programme this week features a session by that most remarkable of vocalists. Roger Chapman ; remarkable it would seem because there have always been twp schools, of thought as to bis vocal ability. The- ' Larry-the-. Lamb ' brigade have for some- years hurled abuse at" Mr Chapman 's vocal gymnastics but anybody with any musical integrity must surely recog- - nise that Roger is one of the best rock singers this country has ever produced. His new band is an extremely accomplished outfit and if there was to be a return for a British rock hero irf 1979 then I am delighted that it is Roger Chapman (even if he does support Leicester City!).'
Producer JEFF GRIFFIN
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
