The Glory Of Glam - 1. The Birth Of Glam

BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 1st October 2016

To complement the BBC's My Generation 70s season, another chance to hear Gary Kemp tell the story of glam. He considers how the flamboyant style of artists, such as like Marc Bolan, David Bowie and Roxy Music, influenced later generations of bands - not least his own Spandau Ballet. Glam was glorious. Brought on by rock's self-indulgent pretensions in 1970, when psychedelia and prog rock were at their peak, glam brought a satin and sequin-fuelled return to the basics of rock 'n' roll, and created the biggest, brightest, shiniest beast the music business had seen.

First broadcast in 2012.
