Classic R&B and the cream of new blues releases. Plus a live session from inspired and adventurous trance-blues specialist Otis Taylor. For details of music played ring the Radio 2 Information Line on [number removed] (landline calls cost no more than 8p per minute)
2/6. A selection of classic, contemporary and obscure hard rock and metal tracks, presented by Bruce Dickinson. And listeners are invited to vote for the final track on the show. Dickinson's guest today is guitarist
Billy Gibbons of the American blues-rock trio ZZ Top, who discusses
30 years of ZZ Top, his new career as an author and the dangers of taking Texas to the people.
4/6. Musician and writer Rowland Rivron presents a light-hearted music show with unusual features and lively guests, who this week include perky-haired singer
Leo Sayer and actress Michelle Collins. Also, self-effacing, "failed" singer/ songwriter John Otway updates his CV for listeners. And there's a sideways glance at lyrics from
David Bowie 's less classic periods. Repeated on Saturday at 1.30pm
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.
