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.
