Long-lost letters from America

Here’s nice little surprise for those of you who remember Alistair Cooke. (Even if you’re much too young, the recordings are well worth listening time…)

Oh yes, I remember listening to him when I was in my teens and early twenties!

Right after the late Radio 4 news on Saturday: “Good eVningg! …” :slight_smile:

They just don’t have guys like him anymore in broadcasting - even Radio 4 has become incredibly ugly, vulgar and distasteful (as well as biased.)

That’s part of the reason why I hate the BBC so much - I used to love it a little.
