Just a quick recommendation today. This is an occasional series on BBC Radio 4 which, despite being the nations’s speech station, produces some of the most interesting music documentaries.
In this series, each programme discusses a song or a piece of music with a particularly strong emotional impact.
This morning, I listened to ‘The Impossible Dream’. It was very moving, featuring a couple of very uplifting stories.
So in a slightly vulnerable state, it was very sad to learn that one of my neighbours has died. Just a few days after they’d celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary. Wow.
Looking forward to hearing more Soul Music on Radio 4. I think I’ll catch up with Gerry Rafferty’s ‘Baker Street’ first, which was on a couple of weeks ago.
There are twelve or so programmes currently available here:
