From the stage of the Renfrew ferry, Paul Jones presents a concert of blues contrasts. At one end of the spectrum, the acoustic subtlety of American veteran Geoff Muldaur , and from the opposite end, the irresistible rhythm and blues of the Big Town Playboys.
Deniece Williams presents inspirational and gospel music. This week, she is joined by singer of smooth jazz and soul Quincy Jones , whose latest album celebrates his favourite artists, who include gospel group Take 6.
The last programme focuses on the aftermath of the national boogie-woogie craze of the forties and shows how in the fifties boogie rhythms became submerged in R 'n' B and rock 'n' roll. With special guest Jools Holland. Producer Neil Rosser
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.
