The programme spans seven days across seven decades – a two-hour journey through the history of this week in music – with the stories behind the songs, from the most famous names in composing, performing and recording.
Find out who sued who, and for what, and how much. Hear the tales of broken romances; the fantastic abilities of songwriting and composing. Discover how music legends died and how they lived – the trauma, the passion, the shame and the glory – the truth about what went on in the recording studios, in the homes and in the lives of the music glitterati.
It’s an incredible mix of music genres, with well known hits and lesser know songs interspersed with the back-stories of how they came about or what happened to the artists at the time.
