Patti Smith on Songwriting
New series1/3. As part of Radio 2's On Song initiative in which songwriters discuss their craft. Mark Hagen interviews New York singer/songwriter Patti Smith , who emerged during the heyday of pre-punk with her influentially raw, expressionistic and attitude-rich stance. A woman who "likes to make trouble", Smith talks candidly about her own writing - including her 1978 collaboration with Bruce Springsteen (Because the Night) - and her new album of covers.

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

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.
