EMMA CASSON IN THE BBC ARCHIVES RESEARCHING FOR OUR PROGRAMME
ABOUT BBC LOCAL RADIO’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY, 2017
Midge Ure presents an investigation of Middle 8s in pop music. They’re not always in the middle, they’re not always 8 bars, but they do always create drama and excitement in a host of well-known songs. Think of Born To Run, A Day In The Life, It’s A Sin, Oliver’s Army, Every Breathe You Take. That bit that isn’t the verse or the chorus, it’s the Middle 8, or the Bridge. Scheduled for broadcast on Saturday 27 April 2013 at 10:30am.
Singled out as one of the Observer’s “Picks of the Day”.
