Brian Matthew Does His Last Sounds of the 60s Show for BBC2
Brian Matthew has certainly been a legend in British Broadcasting since the 1960s. On yesterday's Breakfast with the Beatles Dennis Mitchell featured his interviewing George Harrison. For 27 years Brian has hosted Sounds of the 60s on BBC2. Over the past 7 years or so I have listened to the podcast every Sunday morning.
About 3 months ago Brian suffered a fall at home and could not narrate the show. This weekend he is doing his last show as he presents a compilation of his favorite moments from his time behind the mike. From what I have read Brian wanted to continue, but the "powers that be" at BBC felt he should retire. Brian will return for special shows in the future.
I suggest everyone listen to his final regular show which will be archived for 28 days.
