The People’s Songs was a weekly series that was broadcast throughout 2013 on BBC Radio 2.
Across 50 episodes, Stuart Maconie presented the epic story of how modern Britain was fashioned and shaped, as told by the music, stories and memories of this nation’s people.
From “We'll Meet Again” to “Ghost Town”, from “Rehab” to “God Save The Queen”, we told the story of modern Britain via the records that sound-tracked the times - a period of conflict, social change, parties, prosperity, plenty, poverty, peace and war.
On this channel we asked you to contribute to the series, by sending us your Boos, memories, photos, comments, and song suggestions that helped to shape each programme.

Enjoy the week off.
Yes, I know who I am and I'm feeling sheepish for not making it today:( Sorry guys.
I'm very glad that you and fellow geeks are still holding aloft the torch. Even more these days, an Eric Arthur Blair is needed to remind us of the importance not taking for granted our freedoms that were hard...
Thanks very much for sharing your conversation with Sophia Looney. You asked some very important questions and for the most part Sophia did a good job in answering them but I'm glad that you are cutting through the hype.
I like the idea of #lambethcoop but like you I still have issues...
You've heard it all before, but congratulations to you and your team. We all expect great things.
Even with the small domestic squabbles it's a great tonic to spend time with the children on such a lovely day (before the rain). All my best.

Lovely interview/conversation with Mr De'ath. Great name. His voice paints a really affable character.
I wish that I had experienced Army/Sea/Air Cadets when I was young. I suppose even living in the big smoke (London) I suffered the poverty of experience that unfortunately some youngster in...
