Those Radio Times Advent Calendar: Askey and Murdoch's Hall Of Fame

The early days of radio comedy made household names of several comedians but perhaps none more so than Arthur Askey and Richard Murdoch.

Fronting the radio series Bandwaggon the pairs fictitious home in the rooftop of London's BBC Broadcasting House became a reality to many listeners.

On December 26, 1978, the pair were invited to remember the stars of radio's golden era in conversation with Barry Took in Askey & Murdoch's Hall Of Fame on BBC Radio 4. Among those featured in the hour long programme on BBC Radio 4 were Flanagan & Allan, George Formby and Max Miller.
