* Who were the original Goons? * When did I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue first invite us to enjoy `the antidote to panel games'? * Why do nuclear submarine commanders tune in to Radio 4 every day without fail? * How accurate are `the pips' on your digital radio? From Farming Today at sunrise to the gentle strains of `Sailing By' and the Shipping Forecast long after midnight, Radio 4 provides the soundtrack to life for millions of Britons.
In For the Love of Radio 4: An Unofficial Companion, Caroline Hodgson celebrates all that's best about the nation's favourite spoken-word station, taking us on a tour through its history, its key personalities and programmes, and countless memorable moments from the archives.
