Help Shape The People’s Songs
In the new year, BBC Radio 2 are planning an intriguing new series on some of the songs that have played a huge role in British popular culture. Here’s what it’s all about:
The People’s Songs is a weekly series starting in January 2013 on BBC Radio 2.
Across 50 episodes, Stuart Maconie will present the epic story of how modern Britain was fashioned and shaped, as told by the music, stories and memories of this nation’s people.
From “We’ll Meet Again” to “Ghost Town”, from “Rehab” to “God Save The Queen”, we’ll tell the story of modern Britain via the records that sound-tracked this dramatic and kaleidoscopic period, a period of conflict, social change, parties, prosperity, plenty, poverty, peace and war.
We want to hear from YOU! Your Boos, memories, photos, comments, and song suggestions will shape each programme.
