: Suzi Quatro's Heroes of Rock 'n' Roll: Neil Sedaka

1/6. Radio 2's resident rocker Suzi Quatro recalls six established greats of rock 'n' roll and pop, beginning with Neil Sedaka, who's been writing hit songs since the 1950s. With lyricist Howie Greenfield, he wrote many of his rock 'n' roll-era hits in friendly competition with other New York writing teams such as Gerry Goffin and Carole King. He dated King, immortalising their young love in the song Oh! Carol. Sedaka explains why Calendar Girl is a "sandwich song" and talks about how he layered his multi-tracked harmonies on hits such as Breaking Up Is Hard to Do and Happy Birthday, Sweet 16.

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.
