Every day this week on BBC Radio 2’s ‘Tracks of My Years’, the Godfather of British Pop Sir Peter Blake will be choosing 2 songs that have meant the most to him and discussing his picks with British broadcaster Ken Bruce.
Best known for his iconic album cover for The Beatles’ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, we wonder whether Blake will be picking any tracks by The Beatles this week? We’re certainly expecting some swinging sixties classics. Blake follows a string of celebrities who have appeared on the regular radio programme, including recently Katy Perry, Cheryl Baker, Ian Rankin and Bonnie Tyler.
Bruce picked Peter Blake this week as part of Radio 2’s ‘Colour on the Radio’ week. Radio 2 are celebrating art and painting with a week of special programming. Jeremy Vine will be visiting the National Gallery with a blind person and BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz, Jo Whiley is presenting a ‘Colour on the Radio’ themed mixtape and Simon Mayo will be exploring the business side of the arts world.
