Radio in the LP Era (1948–1982)

Jeremy Summerly

The long-playing record and the BBC’s Third Programme changed the face of classical music in Britain. 

In popular music the 45 rpm record became the recorded medium of choice, and in 1970 the BBC’s home networks grew to four in order to broadcast respectively (and respectably) pop, easy listening, classical music, and speech. 

Radio 3’s flagship programmes such as the weekday drivetime slot Homeward Bound and Saturday morning’s Record Review taught listeners what to listen to and how to listen.
