With the Millennium
Sounds of the 60s.
Brian Matthew presents 34 top tunes from the greatest musical decade. All the usual features of the show have been replaced today in favour of a year-by-year run down from 40 years ago with the first number one of 1960 through to four smash hit chart toppers from 1969 in a programme of undiluted nostalgia.
Radio 2 presenters choose their favourite music ensuring a unique nine-hour eclectic mix of hits and surprises for New
Year's Day. So what better way to embrace the new century than with a unique invitation "from us to you "to share and enjoy music from the worlds of pop, country, R'n'B, folk, jazz, rock'n'roll and much more.

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.
