: I'm on My Way - the Dean Parrish Story

Northern soul enthusiast Pete Mitchell travels to New York to meet soul singer Dean Parrish, whose single I'm on My Way was the final track played at the last of the 1970s northern-soul "all nighters" at the famed Wigan Casino in Manchester.
Parrish (born Philip Anastasia) stopped singing in the 1960s to play guitar with the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley, unaware of his cult following in the UK and Europe, where unknowingly he sold around a million records, but with minimal dividends. Since being tracked down, Parrish has gone back to the studio (with a song provided by Paul Weller) and sees a compilation of his 60s hits released this year. Discussing the Parrish phenomenon are Wigan Casino DJ Russ Winstanley and New York singer Maxine Brown. Producers Ben Walker and Simon Ward

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.
