The BBC want your music memorabilia and memories

The BBC and have teamed up for a unique crowdsourcing appeal that seeks to tell the history of pop music through the memories and memorabilia or fans.

Together, they hope to create a massive online archive that charts the history of rock and pop music through people's wristbands, bedroom posters, ticket stubs, battle of the band performances and fanzines starting in 1956 and ending in 1996 (though there is still a section for the noughties, but it wont make the program!) 

The archive will then be compiled into a new BBC 4 series called The Peoples History of Pop which is due to be broadcast next year.
