People’s History of Pop

How the music world was rocked between 1966 and 1976

Danny Baker presents the second in this occasional series, telling the story of pop from 1966 to 1976 through the eyes of music fans. This, Baker argues, was when the British public was treated to more musical styles than ever before, from psychedelia to the dawn of punk. What makes this worth a watch, though, is the fans. There’s a woman who explains how her life was changed by The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, a couple whose 40 years of marriage began with a date at a David Bowie concert in 1973, and a guy who owns a pair of Marc Bolan’s trainers. A fascinating and enlightening glimpse into a tumultuous period in pop history.
