Deep Purple take over the BBC!

BBC Deep Purple In Concert

BBC Radio 2 have announced a Deep Purple Day on November 16th! Radio 2 is part of the BBC’s national radio network but is now streamed worldwide (and also available on the BBC iPlayer Radio catch-up service.) The highlight of the day is the BBC In Concert appearance which we mentioned before (see post below), but as predicted this LIVE broadcast will also be filmed and available to view via the BBC’s digital Red Button service at the same time as the radio broadcast. However the Red Button service is only available to U.K. audiences who pay for the BBC via a license fee. The footage will then be on the iPlayer for 30 days afterwards, again in the U.K. only.
My thanks to Mark Jones who has been studying his copy of Radio Times magazine and sent us the details. The links are to the programme pages if you want to read a bit more:

Ian Paice says on the BBC website: “Deep Purple are really looking forward to performing for the BBC Radio 2’s In Concert programme. It’s been many years since we did something like this. But through all those years one thing has never changed. Playing live is the only way to capture the spirit of Rock n Roll music, because even 60 years after it reared its wonderful rebellious head that’s what it still is! There is no safety net of the recording machine to ‘fix things later’, you get it right or get it wrong. For the musicians it’s an adrenaline rush, concentration and invention, but most of all fun. That’s why we started doing it when we were kids. We hope you have fun being on the receiving end.”
