RICK BUCKLER IN CONVERSATION with Tony Fletcher. Rick Buckler’s autobiography is the first from a member of The Jam, who some considered were the ultimate Mod band. Rick tells The Jam story from growing up in Woking and meeting fellow members Paul Weller and Bruce Foxton at school, through their formation in 1972 and tells of the band’s early years before signing to Polydor records. He provides a year by year account of The Jam’s progress whilst describing what it was like being a part of the music industry during the 70s and 80s and some of the characters who he met along the way including the Ramones, John Enwhistle, Sid Vicious, Blondie, Boy George and Paul McCartney.

THE WHO AT 50. In this special in conversation, Mark Blake, Chris Charlesworth, Tony Fletcher and Ian ‘Snowy’ Snowball, consider the The Who, the 60s and their continuing impact on popular culture. ‘The 1960s was an era of reinvention that saw a concerted attempt to right the wrongs of previous decades. The music The Who made in the 1960s aspired to this brave new world, while still being haunted by the smoking battles of the old one. It was a music that grew out of bomb sites, ration books and unspoken childhood secrets, but also the great social and artistic changes sweeping through the new decade.’
