: This Guy's in Love with You-the Herb Alpert Story

3/4. Richard Carpenter profiles trumpeter, composer and producer Herb Alpert , who co-founded A&M Records and had seismic success as frontman of Latin-spiced instrumental septet the Tijuana
Brass. The story moves on to mid-1968, when Alpert's solo vocal recording of Bacharach and David's This Guy's in Love with You unexpectedly became a smash hit. Initially dismissed as an uncool valentine strictly for housewives, the volcanic ballad now ranks as perhaps the pinnacle of pop easy listening. Noel Gallagher praises the song's merits. Plus a look at the rise of Alpert and Jerry Moss 's profitable independent record label A&M, which established the Carpenters as superstars, boosted Island Records in the UK and advanced the careers of Peter Frampton , Supertramp and the Police. Contributors include
Herb Alpert , Jerry Moss , Burt Bacharach , Sergio Mendes , Tijuana Brass guitarist John Pisano , Sting, Roger Hodgson and Peter Frampton.

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.
