Radio Yesterday
00:00 to 24:00, Saturday 19 June 2010
on Resonance104.4fm
broadcasting in central London, streaming worldwide on

Most radio stations rely on playlists. Most rely upon the repetition of
familiar tunes. Resonance104.4fm, the award-winning radio station which
famously does not have playlists, presents an entire day devoted to a
single song.

Radio Yesterday presents 24 solid hours of radio in the company of The
Beatles's "Yesterday," reputedly the most covered song in history - in as
many cover versions as it's possible to secure. Midnight to midnight, the
day after Sir Paul McCartney's 68th birthday.

Radio Yesterday is one thing, Radio Yesterday is many things. It's a
forensic examination of "variations on a theme." It's an homage to an
enduring masterpiece. It's an investigation into what turns a pop song into
currency. It's a satirical take on "golden oldie" playlists. It's a
exercise in casual listening taken to a crazy extreme. As comfort zone
turns into endurance test and back, Radio Yesterday is presented as a
conceptual radiophonic artwork by Resonance104.4fm, the winner of the
Radio Academy's Nations and Regions Award for London.

Radio Yesterday is conceived and produced by Ed Baxter. It is curated by
sound-artist Dan Scott. It features the voice of continuity announcer Piers

Radio Yesterday!
