6 Music Plays It Again - Marc Riley's Musical Time Machine - Episode 6
Marc Riley's Musical Time Machine.
This week we travel back to 1973; the year that President Nixon ordered a ceasefire in Vietnam, the Stock Exchange admitted women for the first time, and Princess Anne married Lieutenant Mark Phillips.
It was also the year that Radio 1 broadcast interviews with Pete Townshend in a series called The Story Of Pop. Presented by Alan Freeman the 26 part show featured a big mix of musicians talking about the history of popular music.
At a time when The Who were just about to release Quadrophenia, Marc revisits Townshend's take on the industry, Woodstock, the Kinks and the Mods.
First broadcast in 2009.
