Can you follow the Red Thread?
Tim Cooper will tell you where we’re going, can you work out how we’re going to get there?
The show is called ‘The Red Thread’ because every song somehow connects to the next.
Any possible way it can be connected he will use- artist, title, however he can.
Some of the links are very sensible, some are very tenuous, and some are insane.
Whatever you expect to be the next song, it won’t be!
On the show Tim likes to play songs not usually played on the radio too, you won’t hear the same old songs that other stations play.
The ‘older’ hour features music from the 50’s to around 1990, and ‘newer’ hour its 1990 to the present day.
The title of the show by the way comes from an ancient Chinese belief which states that there is an invisible red thread that connects each of us to all of the individuals who have been, currently are, and will in the future be important to us in our lives.
This red threadcan stretch, twist, and bend… but will never break.
