Music-related programmes (radio, TV, and Podcast)

Postby J » 12 May 2024, 12:53

A thread to highlight programmes broadcast on radio and TV that you think might be of interest to people visiting this board, but don't perhaps warrant a thread of their own.

Edit:
Also, for any Podcasts that you believe to deserve being brought to the attention of others.
(Thread title/subject amended accordingly)

"Split Ends" - a recent short series of 3 half-hour programmes on BBC Radio 4 about the break-up of bands.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m001yqd9/episodes/player

1) Dr Feelgood
(broadcast 16th April, available on iPlayer/Sounds in UK until 16th May)
2) Liberty X
(broadcast 23rd April, available until 23rd May)
3) The Fall
(broadcast 30th April, available until 30th May)

Must confess I haven't had a chance to listen to any of these yet. The Fall one was included in last week's R4 "Pick Of The Week" programme and it had an excerpt where Brix Smith was talking about the end of her time with the band and with Mark E Smith.

What about Podcasts?

I can't believe there are people on here not listening to: The History of Rock Music in 500 Songs - but if there are they should start immediately, currently up to 170 something and Heard It Through The Grapevine.
Moorcock, Moorcock, Michael Moorcock, you fervently moan.

Great idea. Thread title and first post amended accordingly.

Good call re The History of Rock Music in 500 Songs. I've only been downloading it since episode 150 or so (I must get the earlier ones). I'm downloading a few other music podcasts too, including "I am the EggPod" and "The Album Years".

I would certainly welcome hearing about any podcasts recommended by others.
