Graham Laker has been in touch with some IPlayer recommendations (cheers). He says:
“There’s been some great stuff crackling across the airwaves this week, all available on BBC iPlayer:-
Radio 6, Sunday 11th, 1pm – ‘Chuck Berry- 40 Years On’ – Interview from 1974 in which he even admits to liking The Beatles’ ‘Yesterday’ -Not to be missed!
Radio 4, Monday 14th, 9am – ‘Soul Music. Memories of Who Knows Where The Times Goes by Sandy Denny’ – Heartbreakingly Brilliant!
Radio 4 Today 11.30am – ‘I Was…the trauma surgeon who tried to save John Lennon’s life’ – slightly ghoulish but strangely heart warming (almost literally, in this case).”
By the way I did enjoy the first part of “How Hippies Changed the World” on BBC4. There was stuff on it about which I knew almost nothing (notably the 19th century German ‘Nature Boys’) plus the usual suspects, so evocatively described by Mr Greedy as “Silly Nonsense Time”. Guilty of course, but I’m going to use that again.
Part Two is tomorrow evening.
