Because we can. And no one else would think to do it even once... Most radio stations rely on playlists. Most rely upon the repetition of familiar tunes. Here is an entire day devoted to a single song. Radio Yesterday presents 24 solid hours of The Beatles's “Yesterday” - reputedly the most covered song in history - in as many cover versions as it's possible to secure.

As comfort zone turns into endurance test and back, Radio Yesterday is presented as a conceptual radiophonic artwork. First broadcast 19 June 2010, the day after Sir Paul McCartney's 68th birthday. Conceived and made by Ed Baxter and Dan Scott. Announcer: Piers Gibbon.
