On Thursday 15th June the British Music Experience will be closed to the public. As part of BBC Music Day, 6 Music’s Radcliffe and Maconie will be broadcasting a special show live from the British Music Experience, celebrating Liverpool's musical legacy from the Beatles’ era to present day.
As the city celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Mark and Stuart will explore the influence of Liverpool’s music over the last five decades.
With special guests and live music, the show will be broadcast from The British Music Experience in the city’s historic Cunard Building - one of the three graces - overlooking the Mersey, in front of a live audience.
Among the guests chatting to Mark and Stuart will be The Coral’s frontman James Skelly, local singer-songwriting folk hero Mick Head of Shack and - fresh from an appearance at Liverpool’s Positive Vibrations Reggae Festival - The Selecter’s Pauline Black.
There will be live music from legendary Merseyside electronic pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and local indie psych-pop four-piece She Drew The Gun.
