Thanks to Heather for this information on catching Monday’s slot. "Tracks of my Years is on at about 11.40am GMT each day." 

You can listen again to each show on BBC’s iPlayer. 


  • Just looking at the Radio 2 website in the UK and notice that the week day Ken Bruce show is playing Benny Andersson’s tracks of my years. This is a daily segment whereby the interviewee (Benny) introduces the songs, records etc that influenced him. Short but no doubt great listening to hear about his influences and will surely reflect the earlier newspaper articles where he listed his influences and favourite songs.

    Not sure what time this segment is broadcast, but the Ken Bruce show is 9:30am to 12:00pm GMT.

    Details on the Radio 2 website
    and follow the Music tab.



  • Following on from J_ase comments above the Tracks of my Years is on at about 11.40am GMT each day.
    Link attached to see the songs Benny has picked.

    You can listen again to today’s show – tune in at around 2hrs 13 mins.

    It’s fantastic to hear him every day this week!! (albeit pre recorded!) Enjoy!

  • Thanks for this. A bit of welcome promotion for ‘Story of a Heart’ sadly dropping to 45 on this week’s album chart.

  • Anyone record this?
