The Single Story - 2. Episode 2

BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 15th February 2017

David Quantick continues his look at our love affair with the 45 rpm single.

In programme two he looks at the early days of the charts and the effect the single had on that new phenomenon; the teenager; the power the TV Music shows had on the single; and the cultural power of the 45 from the revolution of rock and roll to teeny and weeny boppers and glam rock's children of the revolution.

First broadcast in 2009.
