: Rockin' with Suzi Q

1/11. Retro rocker Suzi Quatro returns with more American rock 'n' roll gems of the 50s and early 60s. This series includes a new feature showcasing two songs by a prominent rock 'n' roll songwriter, starting with Sharon Sheely (Poor Little Fool and Cherished Memories). Also, Suzi celebrates the 50th anniversary of the release of Gene Vincent's hugely influential Be-Bop-a-Lu/a. And Dion provides a rock 'n' roll memory.

Rockin' with Suzi Q
9.00pm R2 There's something strangely comforting in tuning in to a show where listeners ask, without any sense of shame or irony, to hear unknown songs sung by God knows who because they might have been drunk when they first heard them back in the 50s. All credit to US rock 'n' roll expert Suzi Quatro: she knows exactly the track they are referring to, for Suzi Q's a veritable cornucopia of rockin' knowledge, which she liberally enhances with personal anecdotes and sexy cackles. Well-lubricated older listeners are in for a raunchy treat. (Jane Anderson)

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.
