Declare your love for your girlfriend, spouse or even your mum by recording yourself reciting a poem to go on The Times Love Wall!
Need inspiration? The Times has published a special issue of 30 romantic poems to get you in the mood; read them at thetimes.co.uk/lovepoems (please make sure the poem you read is out of copyright, we have marked them on the website). Or of course, you can record a poem of your own creation!
You can either record it here on Audioboo or on our website - and please begin the message by stating your name and who the message is for. From Tuesday, your Valentine will be able to hear your recording on The Times Love Wall; all you have to do is check thetimes.co.uk/lovewall on Valentine’s Day, then send your loved one a link. All recordings will be subject to moderation.
The Times Love Poetry special is appearing in conjunction with the iF poems app, Britain’s first children’s poetry app where you can read, listen to, record and share your favourite poems from a collection of more than 200 classics. A donation of 10 per cent of all proceeds from sales of the app (£1.99 for iPhone, £2.99 for iPad) will go to Save the Children.
The People’s Songs is a weekly series starting in January 2013 on BBC Radio 2.
Across 50 episodes, Stuart Maconie will present the epic story of how modern Britain was fashioned and shaped, as told by the music, stories and memories of this nation’s people.
From “We'll Meet Again” to “Ghost Town”, from “Rehab” to “God Save The Queen”, we’ll tell the story of modern Britain via the records that sound-tracked the times - a period of conflict, social change, parties, prosperity, plenty, poverty, peace and war.
This is a people's history; these are The People's Songs; YOU can help us make history!
Your Boos, memories, photos, comments, and song suggestions will shape each programme. Have a listen to our preview clips and contributions from other listeners and visit bbc.co.uk/peoplesongs to find out more.
