: Otis Redding - Soul Man

2/4. Stuart Maconie continues 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 interviews with guitarist Steve Cropper , trumpeter Wayne Jackson , songwriting partner and soul giant
Jerry Butler , and trumpeter Ben Cauley , the sole survivor of the 1967 plane crash that took Redding's life. This instalment looks at
Redding's string of early-to-mid-60s hits that advanced the Memphis-based Stax/Volt sound.

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.
