You were born in 1901, the year that Marconi first broadcast radio across the
Atlantic. Throughout your childhood, you were fascinated by radio, tinkering
with electrical circuits until you could send a signal.

Once you reached adulthood, however, you put your love of radio aside and
followed your father’s career as a journalist. A friend got you a job on
the South Wales Echo, but Cardiff was too rainy for your taste, and you
quickly transferred to the Evening Post in Nottingham. After several long and
happy years, you were asked to join the BBC as a radio reporter.

Here, finally, was an opportunity to combine your passions for journalism
and radio. Journalism, you have always believed, was not merely a profession
but a calling: you have a duty to tell people what is happening. So, at the
beginning of this year, you took up the post. Your family, especially your sister, regularly tuned into the BBC Regional Programme to hear your voice.
