Black History Month Schedule
This October, Premier Gospel has a number of special programmes lined up to celebrate Black History Month, including a special hour long documentary on Tyscot.
Tyscot is the oldest African American Gospel music label in the world. In a special radio documentary, Premier Gospel journeys 40 years with Dr Leonard Scott and Tyscot’s best loved artists, including ten time Stellar award-winning Anthony Brown and Group Therapy and The Rance Allen Group, who are responsible for the all-time Gospel Classic ‘Something About The Name Jesus’.
If that's not enough, each week we will have short called 'The Music We Love" featuring some of the biggest names in Gospel music.
Week 1: Grammy Award-winning Bobby Jones retells the history of Gospel music in America over the last 80 years.
Week 2: Founder of Gospo Centric Records, who discovered world renown US artist Kirk Franklin, Vicki Mack Lataillade recounts the opposition, misogyny and near misses she overcame to establish one of the most prominent major gospel labels.
Week 3: With over 30 years’ experience within the industry, former producer of BBC’s ‘Songs of Praise’ and ground-breaking gospel music series ‘People Get Ready’, Roy Francis will be joining the dots on exactly how Gospel music gained prominence in the UK.
Catch the features on weekdays at 8:20am on Gospel Breakfast, 3.30pm on Gospel Drive and 11.20pm on Gospel Tonight.
You can also hear them at 10.20am on Saturday Gospel Breakfast and 11.20am on Sunday Mornings with Selene.
