Hello Again

Hello Again

Nine decades of radio voices

Summary

It’s now ninety years since the BBC made its first broadcast and the British love affair with radio began.

This book is a journey through that fascinating history and a celebration of the many wonderful voices that were part of it: Marion Cran, who pioneered the first gardening programme in the 1920s; The Goons and Kenneth Horne, comedy greats of the 1950s; John Peel, Alan Freeman, Kenny Everett and other heroes of the pirate stations; all the way up to Eddie Mair, Fi Glover and Danny Baker, the much-loved voices of today.

A delightful blend of insight, history and nostalgia, Hello Again will appeal to any radio aficionado.

Reviews
