Glastonbury Special2020062820200630 (R2)Johnnie's here with a special show full of early Glastonbury memories across the 1970s.

Back at the first-ever event in September 1970, it cost just a pound to attend, you got a free carton of milk thrown in with the admission price, and fewer than 1500 people turned up. They thought they were going to see The Kinks, but Ray Davies and his boys pulled out at the last minute. Since then it's grown into a global showcase for music and the arts, but sadly the 2020 festival is off.

We can still party though, so join us and celebrate its 50th anniversary in our two-hour bonanza. We revisit Johnnie's interview with Glastonbury supremo Michael Eavis, who shares his stories and anecdotes of those early days, plus he'll name his ultimate Glastonbury Rock God.

Listeners and musicians who were lucky enough to attend back in those early days describe their hazy memories of what it was like and who the stand-out acts were.

Plus, we're warming things up for our second part of this week's show, where we'll be bringing you our Fantasy Glastonbury '77 live music showcase, specially chosen as it's one of the years that there was no actual real festival down at Worthy Farm, but we can imagine just how fascinating the bill might have been with those fresh new upstarts from the Punk scene colliding with rock supergroups and other megastar performers.

Johnnie Walker is here with a special show, packed full of festival memories and more.

Brit Bennett joins Jo for the latest edition of the Radio 2 Book Club, discussing her second novel, The Vanishing Half.

The Vignes twin sisters will always be identical. But after growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it's not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it's everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Ten years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters' story lines intersect?

Jo Chats To Kylie Minogue20200628Jo chats to Kylie Minogue and plays the best archive tracks from previous legends slots on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage.

Kylie took to the legends slot in 2019, and became the most-watched Glastonbury performance ever. The emotional show came 14 years after a cancer diagnosis forced the star to pull out of a planned headline slot.

Her slot included guest appearances from Chris Martin on a flamenco-tinged Can't Get You Out Of My Head and Nick Cave, for the gothic murder ballad Wild Rose. She later paid tribute to Glastonbury's spiritual godfather, by mashing up Slow with David Bowie's Fashion.
