Time after Time

Presenter: Ken Anton

Do you have a favourite song which was popular some years ago?  And then suddenly you hear it once again, revived and re-recorded by another artist.  Perhaps the new version is very similar to the original, or perhaps very different!  In “Time After Time”, Ken Anton brings you pairs of recordings of the same song, a cover version followed by the original.  Can you identify both versions?  Can you spot the join between them?  Sometimes it’s very subtle, sometime easy to spot when the original is a popular children’s song, the other a punk rock version.  The programme is full of surprises.
