A history of radio in Britain by the author of And Now on Radio 4

Itís 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.
