: The Radio 2 Music Club Presents ... Nile Rodgers on Songwriting

As part of Radio 2's On Song initiative in which songwriters discuss their craft, identify their inspirations and offer advice to budding tunesmiths, revered producer/musician/songwriter Nile Rodgers talks to Mark Hagen about his creative methods, specifically his prolific disco-era work as part of dance-funk act Chic. The New York City group's late-70s dance-floor classics include Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah), Le Freak, I Want Your Love and Good Times. With Chic co-founder and songwriting partner Bernard Edwards (1952-1996), Rodgers also co-wrote the 1979 Sister Sledge hits He's the Greatest Dancer, We Are Family and Lost in Music, plus Diana Ross 's 1980 LP diana, including Upside Down.
Other beneficiaries of Rodgers's studio wizardy include Madonna, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Duran Duran and Laurie Anderson. Producer Mark Hagen

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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 programmes, online etc.

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.
