Hello Everyone, welcome back to NetRhythms
On TV this Good Friday - BBC 4 9pm WHITE GOSPEL
The story of America's most enduring and obscure musical sub-culture, from the sound of ancient harmonies sung in remote country churches through to the modern fiery anthems of the religious right, gospel's place in music, "making a joyful noice unto the Lord", has been hugely influential in contemporary music.
"Elvis Presley's favourite musical genre, White Gospel is the foundation of Country music. It taught generations of southerners the principles of harmony, and produced its own legends and stars, such as The Louvin Brothers, Dottie Rambo and The Blackwood Brothers."
Repeated 12.30am and 3.20am
EASTER SUNDAY - BBC Radio 2  7-9am Aled Jones with Good Morning Sunday
Guests in the studio include Folk Singer of the Year 2008, JULIE FOWLIS
