10/10. Mica Paris showcases vintage and contemporary soul, including as-yet-undiscovered artists. The series winds down with a rare radio event featuring recently recorded live music from the Isley Brothers. Plus a round-up of key releases and reissues from the last three months.
3/4. Robert Elms tells the story of Britain's longest-surviving live-music venue -the 100 Club, so named because of its numerical position on London's Oxford Street.
Punk and the 80s
This edition rewinds to
September 1976, when the club hosted the first ever punk "festival", spearheaded by the Damned, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Buzzcocks and club regulars the Sex Pistols.
Siouxsie Sioux, Paul Weller , the Vibrators, Jet Black, Glen Matlock and Charlie Harper all recall the electric days of early punk.
Also, African drummer Julian Bahula discusses the club's devotion to African jazz and township music, which
Chris McGregor introduced in the 80s.
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.
