BBC Radio 6 Music goes back to the beginning this week with a very special all-day ‘deep dive’ to mark the 45th anniversary of Kate’s debut album, The Kick Inside. Listeners can hear the album in full, a track each hour, kicking off on Chris Hawkin‘s show (5am), followed by Lauren Laverne (7.30am), Mary Anne Hobbs (10.30am), Craig Charles (1pm) and Steve Lamacq (4pm) – full schedule on BBC site. Each song will be preceded by a specially-recorded voice note from an artist or creative, talking about how Kate, and her seminal album, inspired them. The shows will also have lots of other music from 1978.

There has already been more great programming this week to accompany the celebration on BBC Sounds, including Kate Bush At The BBC – a collection of interviews and performances recorded over the years – Classic Albums: Hounds of Love, in which she talks to Richard Skinner about the making of the the 1985 long-player, and more Kate Bush-inspired playlists.
