As BBC Radio 6 Music Celebrates Libraries, The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show Celebrates Library Music. There's something a bit dusty and mysterious about Library Music that Craig's going to delve into with the help of the production duo Skeewiff. Library music is usually recorded by very talented session musicians, who write and play for music-library-labels. There compositions are then used on commercial enterprises in TV, radio and film. Sometimes they're revived as a period-piece like the soundtrack to the blaxploitation spoof Black Dynamite. We've asked Skeewiff to give us the lowdown on the scene and create a Library Music masterpiece. We'll be celebrating the Beverley Knight MBE in The History of Women In Funk & Soul. And Craig will hand over 15 minutes to a 6 Music listener so they can spin their favourite Northern Soul in Talcum Time.
