Richard Hawley Presents A Celebration Of The Shadows On BBC Radio 2

The Shadows are getting some long overdue recognition for their roles as rock n roll pioneers on BBC Radio 2 tonight in a one hour documentary presented by Richard Hawley entitled Out Of The Shadows.

As well as regularly backing Cliff Richard on many of his recordings during the first decade of his musical career The Shad's formed a career as a chart act in their own right notching up no less than five UK Number Ones between 1960 and 1963.

Almost 50 years after the release of their second album Out of the Shadows, this radio documentary retells their story and goes some way as to explaining why George Harrison once said "No Shadows, No Beatles"

Out Of The Shadows is broadcast on BBC Radio 2 this evening at 10 O Clock, it will be available to listen again on iPlayer for up to a week after broadcast.

  1. Great to see The Shadows getting recognition in this documentary. Shame that (yet again) the BBC iplayer version cuts off about a minute from the end - I've repoerted it.
