The Rise and Fall of Britpop

10:23 AM GMT+1 on July 9, 2023

    The Rise and Fall of Britpop - A nostalgia fest, this new 6 Music eight part series hosted by Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley looks at the dramatic rise and fall of Britpop. It whittles through a lot of key moments, from the legendary chart battle between Blur and Oasis (obviously), to rock stars being interviewed on beds on breakfast television to Radio 1’s dramatic schedule change. 

    The series is rich in anecdotes from insiders and clips from the BBC archive. More BBC podcasts should consider this.
