Those shortened songs...

We know that we don’t get the full version of each song. We know we can get it on the website. So you don’t need to tell us every single song. Once will do. Thanks.

This is what radio was invented for

The way this programme is constructed it’s as if they are in your living room with a few friends talking about their incredible contributions to music. Who wouldn’t enjoy listening to Paul McCartney, Noel Gallagher, Jimmy Webb, Tom Jones giving us a glimpse of how and why iconic songs were created? This is 10/10. BBC at its very best.
