About the show (by Euronorwich)

Dame Shirley Bassey reached her 80th Birthday on January 8th 2017, and to mark the occasion I summoned the old cassette deck into service to listen again to an off-air recording I made from BBC Radio 2 on Good Friday 1991 – ‘Shirley Bassey In Cabaret’ (though billed in Radio Times as ‘..In Concert’). Dame Shirley apparently appeared at Manchester’s Piccadilly Hotel for four consecutive nights from 31st Oct-3rd Nov 1990, but its not clear if this broadcast is an edited recording of the performances on just one evening or perhaps a ‘best of’ recording from more than one day. Someone will know I’m sure. Enjoy it through the hiss of old cassette tape! James Alexander-Gordon is on continuity duties.
The show was broadcast by Radio 2 as a special for Easter in 1991. As luck would have it, that day on Radio 2 was not without Eurovision either – Ken Bruce was on air at 20.00 that night for a ‘simulcast’ with BBC 1 of that year’s Song For Europe!
Happy Birthday Dame Shirley!
