The History of Tin Pan Alley/Denmark St through music made in the wake of forthcoming developments within the street. 1st transmitted on the 24th of June at 14.00 on Resonance fm 104.4 London on the show Wanted. 100 years ago Denmark Street became the home of sheet music publishing. Soon agents and managers carved their niche there, too. Guitar shops opened along both sides, while drum and keyboard shops followed. Soon number 4 became Regent Sound Studios and number 10 Central Sound. The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, and Black Sabbath recorded at the former, while Donovan and David Bowie taped at the latter. The Giaconda cafe became the beatniks bar of choice. Martin & Coulter penned two UK eurovision hits there while Cook & Greenaway wrote a plethora of 60's UK Top 1o's. In 1992 The Forge at 27 became The 12 Bar Club where, Jeff Buckley, Seasick Steve, Keane, Katie Melua, and Adele all made their debuts.

Was a Denmark Street employee myself in the 80's with Rose Morris working the Acoustic Dept as well as in the Electric Guitars on the ground floor. Was a great job, loved it every day, and have some great memories to boot. Live long friends were made and I can't complain about that!
