The Light Programme

It’s the last Sat­ur­day in the month — and that means it’s time for The Light Pro­gramme, a title that pays trib­ute both the to BBC Radio ser­vice that was renamed Radio 2 in 1967, but also to Bri­an Kay’s Light Pro­gramme, which was a famil­iar source of light music on BBC Radio 3 for sev­er­al years.

Today we present a pro­gramme of the best of British Light Music — tune­ful and melod­ic, pri­mar­i­ly instru­men­tal music and pri­mar­i­ly from the mid­dle of the 20th Cen­tu­ry. How­ev­er there are some sur­pris­es today — both from before and after this peri­od.

Then tune in at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic Time (7pm or 3am UK time) for the lat­est instal­ments of our award-win­ning radio dra­ma from the ZBS Foun­da­tion in the ZBS Radio Hour. Today we con­tin­ue our Steam­punk adven­ture Steam Dream­ers of Inver­ness with Jack Flan­ders and, at the bot­tom of the hour, con­tin­ue Roger Greg­g’s bril­liant work, The Last Har­bin­ger.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link:
