Tony Blackburn Takes Over As Host of Sounds of the 60s on BBC2
I am listening to the podcast of Sounds of the 60s as I usually do on Sunday mornings. Tony Blackburn has become the permanent host of the show after a 3 month stint by Tim Rice. There is a good biography of him in the Wikipedia.
I am disappointed that Brian Matthew will not return after recovering from an injury. He is certainly an icon in British broadcasting and deserved to return to the show. Sadly, ageism has reared its ugly head. Brian will do specials for the BBC in the future.
