Barry Humphries on the wireless



photo Telegraph (which also has a rave review by Gillian Reynolds).

Listening to Radio 2 at 10pm is not usually part of my routine, but I’ve been making an exception for a wonderful little series: Barry’s Forgotten Musical Masterpieces, in which the antipodean polymath reflects on his early life and plays an eclectic range of tracks. Yesterday’s gems included John Mills singing A Little White Room from a review of 1937. The song was written by Beverley Nichols. If that’s not recherché enough for you, I don’t know what is. He ended the programme with Noël Coward’s lovely I’ll See You Again.

More details, Listen Again and the full playlist here.

I do listen to Radio 2 but never at night. It seems like you caught a fascinating series with Barry Humphries :)
It's brilliant!

Oh rats, I forgot! I really enjoyed the programme last week. I will have to Listen Again at the week-end.

Sounds like something wonderful to add to an evening routine. Makes me smile just to think of it.
It's charming, delightful, something completely different.
