Sky Arts and other music related programmes

Recommended Posts

the place to make recommendations for programmes on Sky Arts, preferable before they go out on Freeview, although not vital as they're usually repeated.

King Rocker is repeated next Saturday at 1.45, Trailblazers:Pub Rock, next Thursday at 2.45

Great idea for a thread Paul, I’ve often posted things that are on this channel in the daily awesomeness thread but not everyone sees it, or they ignore me 😂

Great idea Paul, the addition of Sky Arts to Freeview has been great, done really good programmes in there, and not just music, the hour long getting to know actors shows are excellent too.

+1 for Sky Arts. Apart from some excellent music programmes, there is also the art and photography programmes (e.g., Portrait/Landscape Artist of the Year, Master Photographer of the Year).

Great. I've only recently woke up to having Sky arts on Freeview - via a Basschat thread.

Good idea of yours to include the repeat time too!

It's great, but sometimes they play concerts sped-up to fit it into a timeslot, and IT DRIVES ME NUTS.

I watched the David Crosby documentary just this morning. Very interesting and incredibly sad at the same time,  I saw him in Manchester a couple of years ago with his phenomenal band and the whole concert was simply amazing even though I knew very few of the songs he played.

Yep, a great musical night tonight on Sky Arts. I'm just watching the Moody Blues documentary. Great insight into a classic rock/pop band.

Tomorrow (Saturday) 9pm, The Cure live in Hyde Park, 40th anniversary concert. 

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. 

🙂

...also known as Pulse by Pink Floyd. Seriously - it was ridiculous.

I'll keep an eye out for that, just out of curiosity. 

I'd rather they just cut a song out midway, or some of the between song waffle.

That's shocking.

Not that there haven't been some great records over the years that were famously mucked about with.

But to fit in with time slots / ad breaks!? Euch.

Am loving tonight's SA offering - particularly Muse live.

Fabdulous!

I watched Brian Johnson and Mark Knopfler before Muse. I've seen it before but I love listening to MK talk about music. Such a calm, down to earth, humble bloke. There's a YouTube vid where he just talks about his guitars for fifteen minutes but it's just great, and really calming.

I'm usually out of tune and too fast but I've never been on Sky Arts.

I'm sorry, I have absolutely no idea what either of those things are - I am a bass player.
