: Bats out of Hell Meat Loaf

Paul Sexton celebrates the raucously camp and over-the-top 1977 long-player
Bat out of Hell. The 46-minute collaborative effort between singer Meat Loaf (Marvin Lee Aday) and producer/arranger Jim Steinman peaked at number nine in the UK charts and 14 in the USA, but had staying power to match its seismically theatrical gestures, and now ranks as one of the top-selling albums ever.
Defining cuts include You Took the Words Right out of My Mouth, Two out of Three Ain't Bad, Paradise by the Dashboard Light and the title track. Discussing the LP's merits are Meat Loaf and producers Todd Rundgren and Desmond Child.
The album spawned two sequels, the second of which is released this month. Producer Paul Sexton

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.
