Chris Hawkins: A Brief History of Music Festivals
6 MUSIC, 6.00AM
This weekend is Glastonbury. And as well as the usual coverage of live performances and backstage gossip across the radio, on 6 Music (and available online), Chris Hawkins and Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess present a history of the golden age of music festivals. They begin with Chuck Berry at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1958, and go on to follow the story of Bob Dylan going electric, Richie Havens performing at Woodstock, and Jimi Hendrix playing the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970. Brexit: A Tale of Two Cities RADIO 4, 11.00AM
Marking a year since the referendum on leaving the EU, professor Anand Menon of Kings College London, director of the think-tank The UK in a Changing Europe, visits two cities which voted in different ways to speak to citizens about the events of the 12 months since. In Oxford, which voted remain, and Wakefield, which voted to leave, Menon asks local inhabitants how they feel about their decision now, how optimistic they feel about the future, and how they think Brexit will play out.
