Listen on

Episode notes

To broadcast across the UK on BBC Radio 1 and 2 simultaneously on medium wave, long wave and FM - at a time when commercial radio was barely underway - generated huge audiences for the affable David Hamilton. In this hour-long edition of ‘Conversations’, David tells of his early break on Forces radio overseas and his days at the Light Programme through to the giddy days on Radio 1 and a reluctant move to Radio 2. There are stories galore too from into his time in commercial radio – and his current work on ‘The Wireless’ from Age UK. 

In his own words, the words of a hard-working true veteran, this is the David Hamilton story.
