Pronouns

Simply defined, pronouns are words we use in place of nouns. In the musical decades we cover it was easy. Pronouns fell into binary parts – male and female and ‘it’ for animals and objects. But now the English language is struggling to keep up with the plethora of gender identities which have emerged over the last few years. There simply aren’t words in our language to describe some of these recognised and accepted gender identities. So in this program Pronouns are binary. Starting with Rod Stewart‘s masterful rendition of the old standard They Can’t Take That Away From Me the program roams over different pronouns such as He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother (The Holllies), to the strong voice of Samantha Sang You Made Me What I Am to the grammatically correct Just Between You And Me from The Chordettes.
