The tenth in a series of 18 programmes
Introduced by Andy Peebles
Perry was one of the most remarkable producers to emerge in the mid-60s. His first production of any note was the album "Safe as milk" for Captain Beefheart, but his productions with Tiny Tim in the late 60s allowed his theatrical approach free rein and drew attention to his growing presence.
He was responsible for introducing the first all girl rock band Fanny, helped breathe new life into Barbra Streisand's career and gave the errant Harry Nilsson his greatest success. In the early 70s he created major successes for Carly Simon and Ringo Starr, coming closer than anyone to achieving a Beatles reunion. He has been particutarly successful in helping to promote a series of female artists to chart success and currently regards The Pointer Sisters as the flagship of his production operation. His projects cover a wider range than perhaps any other producer in this series and he rates as one of the most outstanding contemporary producers in the United States.
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.
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.
