Keith & Ruth Bradshaw

Sixties Music Memories
Sundays 5pm – 7pm

Keith and Ruth Bradshaw are a husband and wife team with a love of popular music stretching back to the 1950s and the birth of rock n roll. For them, presenting a weekly trip back into the music of the golden decade that shaped the face of popular music – forever – is a labour of love!

Keith grew up in Morecambe on the North West Riviera. In the 1960s, it was a bustling seaside resort frequented by the bands of the day – Beatles, Stones, Shadows, Kinks, Hollies and more. The theatres hosted the much sought after music package shows, featuring top American recording artists and groups. By contrast, Ruth’s from Tushingham in rural South Cheshire.

Both are former secondary school teachers, specialising in history – nostalgia and a feeling for the past features strongly in their programmes. Keith has also worked in Public Relations and Journalism.
They have lived and worked in and around Leyland, Central Lancashire for 30 years or more. Both are active members of Go On Tour (Golden Oldies), an Over-55s entertainment group. Keith is the MC and part-time comedian, while Ruth sings and dances.

Their relaxed homely style creates a feeling that they are right with you in your living room, playing the music and chatting to you. In so doing they even create the illusion they are making it up as they go along – deftly belying the time, research and attention to detail they have invested to make the show come over as unscripted.

Join Keith and Ruth every week as they relive so many great memories from the 1960s!
