The Charlatans and John Cooper Clarke share headline duties in this special Classic Concert, recorded at the 6 Music Showcase earlier this year in the brand new BBC studios in Salford.

The Charlatans, whose singer Tim Burgess hails from nearby Cheshire, run though a string of their best-loved indie classics including "North Country Boy" and "The Only One I Know". Local legend John Cooper Clarke, (also known as the Bard of Salford), performs his classic "Beasley Street" then brings it bang up to date with the gentrified "Beasley Boulevard".

The Classic Concert is presented by Chris Hawkins.
