As its name suggests, Backbeat features older music, focussing on lesser-known or forgotten music of all genres. Lively, fun and informative.
Lots of great guitar players this week, famous ones like Big Bill Broonzy, Lester Flatt and Doc Watson, great session players Hark Garland and Grady Martin plus lesser-known greats Goree Carter and Eddie Bush. We also look at how the Mills Brothers inspired vocal harmony groups at home and in Africa and how early rock 'n' roll artists often revived hits from the 1920s. Oh, we also have a guy named Longhair singing about no hair.
