Including Tracks of My Years, in which Whitesnake and ex-Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale picks two more of his ten favourite records. Plus a continued spotlight on the Verve's Forth - the band's first album since re-forming in 2007 and the first since their 1997 monster hit Urban Hymns.
R&B/soul specialist Trevor Nelson contrasts original genuine soul with contemporary recordings by hip-hop and neo-R&B artists who have drawn inspiration from the classics. Performing in session is Mobo and Brit-winning reggae star Finley Ouaye. Tonight's playlist features Betty Wright 's Make Me Love the Rain (1981),
Jeffrey Osborne 's I Really Don't

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.
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.
