John Myers was the no-nonsense Northerner from humble roots who rose to head some of the UK’s largest radio stations.

In this hour-long ‘Conversations’ he spoke openly of his life: from his early roadshows and the days at BBC Radio Carlisle and a young Red Rose Radio; through to his role on the ground as he grew the Border TV and GMG radio empires. He told of what he might have done differently – and gave the inside story of his famous ‘Trouble at the Top’ TV appearance.

In his own words, this is John’s story. John died in June 2019.
