The Power of Song - Jan 2024
Thinking Allowed
Laurie Taylor talks to James Walvin, Professor of History Emeritus at the University of York and author of a new study which explores the cultural history of "Amazing Grace," one of the transatlantic world's most popular hymns and a powerful anthem for humanity.
How did a simple Christian hymn, written in a remote English vicarage in 1772, come to hold such sway over millions in all corners of the modern world?

Also, Angela Impey Professor of Enthomusicology at SOAS[School of Oriental and African Studies], argues that songs in South Sudan can be key platform for truth-telling, often invested with greater moral force than other forms of communication in the context of 50 years of civil war.
What role can songs play in the struggle for peace and justice?

Great Lives - Harry Belafonte

"Mr Motivator picks Harry Belafonte

Great Lives

Harry Belafonte became the King of Calypso with hits like 'Day-O' and 'Jump in the Line' but he would later describe himself as an activist who became a musician and an actor.

Fitness guru Derrick Evans MBE AKA 'Mr Motivator' spent much of the 90s on TV wearing brightly-coloured spandex and encouraging people to be more active. He stresses the political messages that underpin Calypso music and celebrates the stand Belafonte took in the campaign for civil rights in America in the 1960s. Derrick moved from Jamaica to the UK when he was a boy and remembers the impact of the Belafonte film 'Carmen Jones'.

Presenter: Matthew Parris
Guest: Derrick Evans AKA 'Mr Motivator'

This Cultural Life - Nigel Kennedy

Originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 30.12.23

"John Wilson's guest is the violinist Nigel Kennedy. A prodigy whose childhood talents were nurtured by Yehudi Menuhin, one of the greatest violinist of the 20th century, Kennedy himself became an international star in 1989 with his recording of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. It sold over three million copies, topping the UK classical charts for a year and went on to be listed as the biggest selling classical album of all time in the Guinness Book Of Records. An unconventional classical musician from the outset, it wasn’t just his wardrobe, accent and attitude that set him apart. As well as recording all the major violin concertos, his repertoire includes jazz standards, folk tunes and Jimi Hendrix. He remains one of the world’s greatest virtuosos.

For This Cultural Life, Nigel chooses his two violinist mentors; Yehudi Menuhin and the French musician Stéphane Grappelli with whom he shared a love of jazz and improvisation. Going to New York to study at the prestigious Juilliard School also proved a turning point for Kennedy, not so much for the teaching he received there, but for the legendary jazz musicians like Jimmy Rowles and Ellis Larkins that he sought out in clubs downtown and in Harlem. Nigel also discusses how being a fan of Aston Villa football club has made him think about crowd dynamics in his concerts and reveals the influence of his dog Huxley on his approach to his career."

I found this an interesting programme. I have not listened to much of his output but I was struck by how warmly he spoke about Menuhin and Grappelli.

Desert Island Discs - Val Wilmer

"Val Wilmer has photographed and interviewed many of the most significant musicians of the post-war years, including Duke Ellington, Muddy Waters, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin and many more.

Val grew up in Streatham in South London, where a local record shop helped to nurture her love of music, especially jazz. Her lifelong passion for jazz and photography began at an early age: when she was just 14 years old, she persuaded her mother to take her to London Airport to see off the jazz legend Louis Armstrong who had been playing in the UK. She asked him for an autograph, then took a picture of him as he broke into a huge smile. The image was the first of many classic shots.

Alongside her work as a photographer, Val has written extensively about music, as a journalist for numerous publications and as an author: her book As Serious As Your Life, examining the evolution of free jazz within the wider context of racial and sexual politics, has been widely acclaimed as a classic text.

In 1983 she co-founded Format, the first all-female photographic agency, which aimed to champion women photographers and to widen the range of images available to newspapers and magazines.

Her photographs are held in the collections of the V&A and the National Portrait Gallery."

Travelling back to the 1950s, Jumoké plays music by the artists who inspired and enthralled him, unearthing some of Kerouac’s own collaborations with jazz musicians as well as tributes from the greats.

BBC Radio 2 Folk Show Wednesday 21:00

10 April 2024 Shaun Keaveny sits in, with with live guest Martin Simpson.

17 April 2024 Shaun Keaveny explores folk music, with guest Olivia Chaney.

* Saturday 20 April 2024 01:00; Repeat from Wednesday 20 September 2023; Paul Simon talks about his life and his latest work: Seven Psalms.

Now aged 81, Paul Simon is an outstanding artist of his generation, writing strings of extraordinarily successful and well-loved songs across nearly 70 years of music-making. Speaking in New York, he recalls early experiences on the British folk circuit during the 1960s, and talks about his new album, Seven Psalms, a seamless song cycle that evolves over one 33-minute track.

In an extended interview with Mark Radcliffe, Paul recounts how the title came to him in a dream, and discusses the recurring themes of the piece. He talks about mortality, creativity and spirituality, and about collaborating with his wife Edie Brickell and with the vocal ensemble VOCES8.

There's also a chance to hear Paul performing in his first BBC radio session in 1965, as he remembers the London friends who gave him that early opportunity. Paul also talks about his present ability to perform, and his ambitions for the near future. Artist Charlie Mackesy (The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse) is running a free exhibition of sketches, inspired by Paul Simon's Seven Psalms, in London during September 2023.

Is this folk yet? idk
I thought it was a very interesting and well put together programme anyway.


The Golden Age of the MGM Musical - 2024
Sunday Feature
,,,Freed's music Unit employed the top musicians of the time - Conrad Salinger, Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Kurt Weill - many of whom had fled war-torn Europe and rising anti-Semitism.
From the early days of sound, MGM became synonymous with the spectacular, technicolour musical - the first studio to integrate music, plot and dance in film in an intelligent way. Over the years, with huge successes like Meet Me In St Louis, The Wizard of Oz and Singin' in the Rain, they became the 'Faberge Egg' of movie production. And these hits often coincided with moments of huge social and political turbulence, offering audiences fantasy and escape from the Great Depression, war and prejudice.
With archive and original interviews including Alicia Mayer - grand-niece of Louis B, film music historian Jon Burlingame and conductor John Wilson, Neil Brand explores this extraordinary period in film history.

The only bit of singing is in the last half minute but it's good to hear Stanley Robertson being interviewed in 1988.

Walking the Old Lumphanan Road with the Late Stanley Robertson - 2024
Scotland Outdoors
Stanley Robertson was from the Travelling People and in the 1980's he published a book called 'Exodus to Alford' featuring stories associated with a particular road his people used to take each Summer when he was a boy. Former BBC Producer Doreen Wood went there with Stanley in 1988 and recorded an interview with him describing his memories of this special place.

In this podcast, Mark Stephen and Helen Needham go in search of the Old Lumphanan Road with the archive of Stanley in their ears, offering a fascinating insight into the culture and beliefs of him and his people and a way of life that no longer exists in this part of the world.

Front Row

Miranda Rutter and Rob Harbron's new folk album, Bird Tunes, is inspired by birdsong they hear in woods in the Cotswolds. They perform a track on fiddle and concertina and talk about how manipulating the sounds made by blackbirds, wrens and cuckoos helped to inspire musical phrases in different keys.

They play the Golden Blackbird jig rather well!
