Bob Harris' Ultimate Playlist
The Bob Harris Music Library throws open its doors for a series of programmes that mixes personal favourites with influential tracks, reflecting not only Bob's life-long love affair with music but also his interest and knowledge in both its historical roots and contemporary influences.
Bob brings together not only music from his nigh-on 45 years in radio, but he will also be making connections across the decades and across musical genres, building a playlist of cornerstone releases that have helped shape the sound of music as we hear it today.
In an age where people like to neatly fit music into genres, this series will show how blurred the edges of those musical category boxes can actually be. - Music played
Programme two encompasses early rock 'n' roll, sixties soul, influential singer songwriters and much more including music from The Drifters, The Wallflowers, Tinariwen, Robert Johnson and Aretha Franklin. - Music played

Americana UK Visitors Poll 2013: Best Radio Show - Bob Harris Sunday
'No surprise with the winner here, although the Sunday show this time around beat its little country brother by just one vote – one vote! Bob remains the most prolific supporter of americana in the UK and his playlists still read like dream compilations, the type you’d take away to a desert island with you'
