Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

It's a bit late now, so my apologies, but last week-end either BBC4 or Yesterday ran the 3 part Pop Britannia documentary series. Charting (sorry, unintentional pun) the story of "pop" music from the rise of Tommy Steele and Marty Wilde through to todays "artists". Odd to see how things continue alternate from Star-maker Svengalis (Larry Parnes to Simon Cowell - not much change there then) to Independant mavericks. Worth watching out for if it comes round again.

Tommy Steele eh????

How the Brits Rocked America from 9.00pm Friday, 27th January on BBC4 TV.

I'm really looking forward to this: How The West Was Won

and The Beatles: The First US Visit

and Vox Pop: How Dartford Powered the British Beat Boom

and Electric Proms: Paul McCartney at The Roundhouse

all repeated at 00.40am on Saturday morning.

Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

Something not to be missed on Friday the 13th if you live in the UK or near continent as good old Auntie has come up trumps with an evening of Southern Rock on BBC4.


Sweet Home Alabama: The Southern Rock Saga with contributions from the survivors of those crazy times, including Gregg Allman, REM's Mike Mills, Doug Gray, Al Kooper, Bonnie Bramlett, Charlie Daniels etc. @ 9.pm


Southern Rock at the BBC featuring performances from Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Delaney & Bonnie with Eric Clapton, Dickey Betts from the Allman Brothers Band, the Marshall Tucker Band, Black Oak Arkansas, the Charlie Daniels Band, Greg Allman with then-wife Cher, Edgar Winter and, of course, Lynyrd Skynyrd


OGWT: Lynyrd Skynyrd in Concert. I remember watching the original broadcast of this and it’s a classic and not to be missed. Freebird seemed to go on forever.


Macon Whoopee (very droll roll ) featuring Wet Willie, Marshall Tucker Band, Dickey Betts, Bonnie Bramlett and Stillwater. It will be great to see some footage of Wet Willie. I have a couple of their live albums, but have never seen them play. This will probably be a first in the UK.


For a Southern Rock fan such as me, Friday night should be unmissable and definitely worth recording for posterity.

Phil this post really makes me wish our PBS had all the BBC programming.  I'll miss hearing all those Southern Rock favorites that I grew up on.  Coincidentally on the road today I was listening to The Allman Brothers Live at Fillmore East and reliving those days!

You'll be jealous to know, however, that when the New Orleans Superdome opened many years ago there was an all day concert which I attended that included many of these Southern Rock favorites, including Marshall Tucker Band, Wet Willie and others, with The Allman Brothers closing out the night!  cool

Bump. If something's worth saying, it's worth saying twice. smile

Yes, Sandy, I'm very envious. That sounds like my kind of show. I give Filmore East a frequent play; you can't beat it. I think I played the vinyl version to death all those years ago.
