Blur man's BBC tribute

POSTED Nov 16, 2012

Blur frontman Damon Albarn has unveiled a special composition to celebrate BBC Radio's 90th birthday.

'2LO Calling' is a three-minute piece featuring iconic radio sounds from the past nine decades including the chimes of Big Ben, the number one song from 90 years ago as well as contributions from listeners: "There is a special musicality to some of the vocal messages, which I tried to preserve. Added to that, I got to do what I've always wanted – to play along with the pips".
