D New series 1/4.
Stuart Maconie presents a tribute to singer/songwriter
Otis Redding , whose unpolished and achingly expressive vocals exemplify the kind of unaffected soul singing no longer heard in mainstream popular music.
Redding died in 1967, aged 26, leaving a distinctive repertoire that includes I've Been Loving You Too Long (to Stop Now), Respect, Try a Little Tenderness, Tramp (with Carla Thomas ) and the posthumous US number one hit (Sittin'on the) Dock of the Bay. The series features modern interviews with Redding's guitarist Steve Cropper , trumpeter Wayne Jackson and songwriting partner and soul giant Jerry Butler , and trumpeter Ben Cauley , the sole survivor of the 1967 plane crash that took Redding's life. Producer Nick Barraclough
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.
