Those Were the Days, David Corbett’s meticulous history of BBC Radio’s old-time dance output from 1943 to 1991, is receiving glowing reviews. We’re planning a ‘launch ball’ for early 2015.
‘A real work of broadcasting scholarship as well as being a useful piece of social history.’ GILLIAN REYNOLDS, Radio Critic, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph.
‘Those Were the Days’ is wonderful…..it will give me great pleasure.’ PAUL DONOVAN, Radio critic, Sunday Times
‘I arrived home the other day to find a large wrapped paving slab leaning against my door. When I opened the package I couldn’t believe the size and detailed contents there were within. What a magnificent undertaking, and I can’t tell you how much I’ve already enjoyed reading about my early days at the BBC, and so many wonderful names from the past. I shall display the book with pride on my book shelves.’ BILL BEBB, Producer of, ‘Those Were the Days’ 1964.
