Singer Mica Paris presents a series that honours seven records and seven artists for their dramatic impact on soul music. 4: Paris listens to Terry Callier 's 1972 debut LP Occasional Rain, which featured his now infamous hybrid of blues, folk and jazz, heightened by a rich and soulful vocal delivery.
Bob Harris introduces a series marking the 30th anniversary of Old Grey
Whistle Test, the BBC rock programme which featured casual studio sessions and interviews in an atmosphere far removed from today's hyper-stylised shows. This part recalls the pub rock years of the mid-seventies, with Supertramp,
Bonnie Raitt , Dr Feelgood. Little Feat and John Lennon.
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.
