The Great British Songbook On Richard's Show

Every Saturday from 0400 - 0500, Richard will be spinning a full 60 minutes of music written solely by Brits.

This will include very special live performances of classic British songs covered by artists who've performed on Radio 2 for the Great British Songbook.

From Annie Lennox covering Ash to Snow Patrol's take on John Martyn, the world of music pays tribute to some of the greatest British songs ever written.
