Since 2007, 'Unforgettable' has been broadcast every Monday evening at 19:00 hrs by BBC
Radio Lancashire. The programme features three hours
musical nostalgia - spanning the decades from the 1920's to the
1960's. It's largely a request programme - with most of the music
each week chosen by the listeners. The power of the music is to
rekindle some memories, and sometimes play again a recording that
someone hasn't heard for over half a century!
You can listen 'live' or whenever you want via the BBC
iPlayer. You'll find links here to do either - and
request your personal favourites
REMINDER From 2013 - the programme moved to 16:00hrs every Sunday afternoon on BBC Radio Lancashire

started out life at BBC GMR (now BBC
Radio Manchester) back in May 2000. That programme had a very similar
format to the current BBC
Radio Lancashire incarnation. It was broadcast on Monday evening,
for three hours and included requests from listeners all over the North
West. Come to think of it - the format is identical! In 2000 the
first programme included Bob Hope & Bing Crosby singing together, Judy
Garland, Caroll Gibbons and the Ink Spots.
facts about the programme ...
The series ran for around three years, and built up a loyal and devoted
audience. At the end of July 2007, BBC Radio Lancashire asked Gerald Jackson
to bring the programme to Monday nights there. The long running Frank Wappat
show was coming to an end, and the station wanted to replace it with a similar
mix of music and nostalgia.
Things had changes since 2000, and now anyone could listen around the world
via the BBC website. It soon became apparent that many of the former listeners
in Manchester and the North West had found the timeslot and station. Added
to that, people from the USA, Australia and across Europe also logged on
to listen. Another technical development, the BBC iPlayer
now also provides a 7 day catch up service, so listening is no longer restricted
to the live event.
BBC Radio Manchester
From Sunday 22nd June 2014 the programme returned to BBC Radio Manchester every Sunday evening from 22:00 hrs. The two programmes are different shows, but there's likely to be quite allot of crossover with the musical requests! Why not listen to both?
