Jerseybeat - the Four Seasons Story

New series 1/4. Recalling a seemingly simpler era, Paul Sexton profiles 1960s pop giants the Four Seasons, whose radio-perfect US chart hits -
Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Walk like a Man, Candy Girl, Dawn (Go Away), Rag Doll, Let's Hang On! and C'mon Marianne - owed much to singer Franki Valli 's piercing falsetto and to the songwriting/ producing/arranging team of Bob Crewe , Bob Gaudio and Charlie Calello. Holding its own against the British invasion, the pop machine also charted in 1965 as the Wonder Who? (with a cover of Bob Dylan 's Don't Think Twice), while solo Valli hit big in 1967 with Can't Take My Eyes off You.
The New Jersey-raised group's mid-70s comeback - with just
Valli remaining from the original line-up - included the US/UK number one December 1963 (Oh, What a Night), while Pilooski's edit of their 1967 hit Beggin' became a UK dance hit in 2007. The series features input from Bob Gaudio , pop veteran Dion DiMucci , original Four Seasons Franki Valli and Tommy DeVito , and various cast and crew of the West End production of the Tony-winning Four Seasons musical Jersey
Boys, which opens next month. Producer Paul Sexton

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.
