About This Event
Stand back as Ken Bruce wheels in the birthday cake and lights the candles for Radio 2's 50th anniversary! In this special concert Ken Bruce, aided and abetted by the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Stephen Bell, recalls some of the great programmes and moments of Radio 2's long history. Presenters past and present gather at the Hackney Empire in London for a good old catch up and to remember a wide variety of shows. Our guests include the singer-songwriter Albert Hammond, and tonight he'll perform a selection of classic Radio 2 hits with the full BBC Concert Orchestra.
