CELLULOID JUKEBOX - 5. EPISODE 5 (320kbs-m4a/126mb/55mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 14th April 2018
It could be argued that modern pop music began in the mid 1950s with Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley and the Comets. This iconic song was used for the opening credits of the teen high school drama Blackboard Jungle in 1955, and then, a year later, the movie Rock Around the Clock came out featuring Bill and The Comets in a fictionalised account of the birth of rock n roll.
More than 60 years on, Mark Kermode brings us a unique and personal tour of his very own Celluloid Jukebox. In each programme we will hear music from the six decades that cinema and pop music have been partners. The musical selection will be eclectic and free flowing - sometimes connected by theme or genre, sometimes by year or artist and sometimes through Mark's particular and personal associations. He shares anecdotes and gives context to the choices, and each programme will feature extracts of dialogue from some of the films featured, as well as other audio archive.
