: Suzi Quatro's Pioneers ofRock

6/6. Singer Suzi Quatro pays tribute to the mavericks of rock 'n' roll, profiling both the recognised giants and the unsung heroes. She concludes with Dion (born
Dion DiMucci), the white doo-wop vocalist who with the Belmonts recorded the poignant 1959 classic A Teenager in Love. A huge solo star until the arrival of the Beatles in 1964, Dion remains a key figure from the first pop-rock era with a repertoire that includes Runaround Sue (a US number one), The
Wanderer, Lovers Who Wander,
Ruby Baby, Donna the Prima Donna and the mournful 1968 folk-pop

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome
