For our fans in the UK… “When Life Was Brill“
I’m hosting a two part documentary looking at the music, the writers, and the buildings in New York which created the soundtrack for a generation. I discuss the unique atmosphere of the late 50’s and early 60’s and how song writing changed from grown ups writing for teenagers to teenagers writing for teenagers, in addition to the Jewish tradition which shaped the background of so many of the writers. The programmes also reflect how the British invasion, the rise of Motown, the emergence of the singer/songwriters and the focus of the U.S music industry switched from New York to Los Angeles.
The first part airs TONIGHT at 22:00 GMT on BBC Radio 2.
Part Two airs on next Monday, April 27th! Click here for more information!
