: The Record Producers

Phil Spector. The seventh in a series of 18 programmes
Introduced by Andy Peebles
No other record producer has stamped his own style on productions in such a positive way as PHIL SPECTOR. Celebrated not only for his highly individual records but also for his eccentricity, he insisted on recording in mono at a time when stereo was regarded as the accepted standard. By the end of 1960 he had produced his first big hit, which was shortly followed by an increasing flow of hits from his own groups: The Crystals, Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans, and The
Ronettes. In the mid 60s he produced the highly-acclaimed' You've lost that loving feeling ' for the Righteous Brothers and Ike and Tina Turner 's ' River deep - mountain high '. There followed a lengthy association with John Lennon and George Harrison at which time Spector was Head of Artists and Repertoire for Apple Records.
His most recent success was in 1980 with an album for The Ramones - ' End of the century '. ( Broadcast Sun 7.0 pm)

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.
