Bring back the Rock and Roll years

I know there are issues with broadcasting, and copyrights, but I think it is time the BBC brought out a Rock n Roll years series for the nineties and naughties. The last time this programme was shown on TV was one for the 1980's - between Wednesday
2nd March 1994 and Wednesday 27th April 1994. The rock stars have more money than what they need, so what does it matter to them? It is better than programmes with loads of talking heads on. Who cares what some z-list celebrity thought to chopper bikes in the 1970's or BMX's in the 1980's?


Here are some shows of the Rock and Roll years... for...
1974....

I have a memory of chopper and BMX bikes, which I enjoyed for a year or two in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Thanks much for the birth date.

Mark Boerbach has some great information. I'll go and find him for you, or you can Google his name.

That is him Adelaide. I have just looked him up. He sounds a lot like myself except that he has a worse deal than me, because he is visually impaired. You were born on a Saturday, but I guess you knew that already.

Did you watch the Rock n Roll years for the year of your birth?

Britpop years were a time to remember but the 00s was just primarily the decade that music forgot.
