: You Send Me - the SamCooke Story

2/4. Paul Gambaccini presents a tribute to soul giant Sam Cooke , who died in 1964 from a gunshot wound under mysterious circumstances. His unmistakeable vocals - a graceful and good-natured mix of gospel-inpired soul and pop - appealed equally to white and black audiences.
Career highs include You Send Me, Wonderful World, Chain Gang,
Cupid, Twistiri the Night Away and A Change Is Gonna Come. Plus a look at Cooke's control of the recording, management and publishing aspects of his career - an unusual feat in the early days of the rock and pop era.

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.
