It’s almost that time again, the end of one decade and the beginning of another. This year, as a way to usher out the 2010 decade, BBC 6 Music is doing a 6-part series with Sherlock and Hobbit star Martin Freeman.
Every day at 1 p.m. GMT, starting on December 26 with the 1960s and ending on December 31 with 2010s, Freeman will be discussing his favorite album from that decade of music.
The BBC 6 listed the album from each decade so make sure you tune in to listen to Freeman talk about why they are his favorite and how he feels that they contributed to the music scene both of that time and how they’ve influenced current music. He will also be talking about his favorite music from each decade, which runs the gamut from soundtracks to covers and everything in-between.
1960s is The Band by The Band
1970s is The Hissing of Summer Lawns by Joni Mitchell
1980s is Done By the Forces of Nature by Jungle Brothers
1990s is Push the Button by Money Mark
2000s is Free the Bees by The Bees
2010s is Sound and Color by Alabama Shakes
