The Light Programme

It’s the last Sat­ur­day of the month and time to jour­ney into the tune­ful and melod­ic world of Light Music as we recre­ate — to some extent at least — the BBC Light Pro­gramme and its pre­sen­ta­tion of pop­u­lar tunes from 1945 until 1967 and beyond, but with the addi­tion of pop­u­lar Light Music occa­sion­al­ly going back well before then.

This month we’re fea­tur­ing a col­lec­tion of music that reach­es back to include the British dance bands and band­stands of the 1920s and 1930s, wartime film music and much more.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are in the Unit­ed States, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er. 

To lis­ten from out­side the US, click here to start your play­er if your brows­er is set up to pass streams to an exter­nal play­er or can play audio streams direct (many can). 

You can also lis­ten via TuneIn, either with their web site or via the TuneIn App.

This pro­gramme is also avail­able in enhanced-qual­i­ty AAC. Tune in here:
