Suzi Quatro's Heroes

Mondays: 6:30

Suzi Quatro presents a series profiling six of her musical Heroes.

Programme 2 - Jackie DeShannon

Jackie DeShannon has made her mark as both a great interpreter of songs by the best composers and as a successful writer.

A singing star on the radio from the tender age of six, as a teenager she was hanging around with the giants of rock 'n' roll.

She had minor hits with Needles and Pins, and When You Walk In The Room, which were both covered by The Searchers.

Her cover of Bacharach and David's What The World Needs Now Is Love made the US top ten in 1965.

Her biggest hit as a recording artist came four years later, in 1969, with Put A Little Love In Your Heart.

As a songwriter, her first US top five hit was Dum Dum, recorded by Brenda Lee. However it was Bette David Eyes, which Jackie co-wrote with Donna Weiss in 1981 and recorded by Kim Carnes, that was a worldwide smash.

In this edition of the series, Suzi and Jackie compare notes on their struggles as women in the male-dominated world of the music business.

This Wheel's on Fire - The Soundscape of 1968

Tuesday 6:30 PM EDT

Lord Sebastian Coe, who was inspired to join his local athletics club by the 1968 Olympic Games, presents this soundscape.

Taking place in Mexico City, the games saw Britain’s David Hemery win the 400m hurdles in world-record time, and USA’s Bob Beamon become the first long-jumper to leap more than 28ft.

It was also on the victory rostrum, during the US national anthem, that sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised gloved fists in the air as a symbol of defiance in the long struggle for civil rights.

Both athletes were expelled from the Games.

Away from Mexico, the world reeled in turmoil and tragedy with the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, tanks on the streets of Prague, and war in Vietnam.

An aural collage of archive recordings, newsreels, newspaper clips and music, form the latest addition in BBC Radio 2's Soundscape series.

Too Much Too Young:
The Story of 2-Tone

Saturday 1:04 PM

Paul Sexton traces the history of 2-Tone records and the band at its centre - The Specials.

1979 saw Ska explode onto the UK's music scene. Leading the wave were The Specials, who tackled social issues, unemployment and racism through their music.

The band were signed to the 2-Tone label, which was the brainchild of The Specials' Jerry Dammers, who wanted to create his own Motown Records - in Coventry.

2-Tone scored seven hit singles, a top-ten album, and a sell-out UK tour - all within its first year. The label also launched the careers of Madness, The Selector and The Beat.

Featuring new interviews from The Specials, Madness, The Beat and The Selector, Paul will also talk to Pete Waterman, Don Letts and Gary Bushall to follow the highs and lows of the label and its bands.
