3/8. As the pop single struggles to secure its niche in the digital era, Radio 2 singles out eight 45rpm records - all released between 1966 and 1977 - for their lasting significance. Each week a known music figure presents an in-depth exploration of a classic seven-inch. Tonight Fran Healy (of Travis) enthuses over the Beach Boys'laboriously produced US/UK number one, Good Vibrations - a technically innovative and rather anthem-like track recorded in part alongside but not appearing on their 1966 long-playing triumph Pet Sounds. With input from Neil Finn and Tim Finn (of Crowded House), Charlie Reid and Craig Reid (of the Proclaimers), Glen Campbell and Brian Wilson.
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.
