If ever a six year period in history was destined to change the course of almost everyone’s lives, then the years between 1939 and 1945 did just that. For those who were there the music and the songs of the times captured perfectly the joys and sorrows, the happiness and heartache in their lives.
In Britain’s darkest hours popular music and song offered great cheer, comfort and optimism that things would soon get better. Over sixty years have now passed since the war finally ended but the songs still live on in the memories of the men and women who lived through those times Jeff Jackson now brings to you his "Songs that won the War" show. A unique tribute to the music, the songs and singers of those years.
From the optimistic early days of "The Siegfried Line" to Ivor Novello's end of war homage "We'll Gather Lilacs" Jeff sings the songs that mean so much to so many.
