Funny You Should Ask - Betty Driver

Funny You Should Ask was the Radio 2 entertainment quiz that ran from the mid 1970s to the mid 80s.

Under the somewhat shambolic chairmanship of Peter Jones the quiz was essentially a chance for entertainers to provide a few amusing anecdotes about their career; a good story mattered more than the score.

In this programme, first broadcast on 28 June 1982, you’ll hear from Betty Driver, Ken Dodd and Ken Platt. I’m posting this programme by way of tribute to Betty who died earlier today. Although mainly associated with Coronation Street Betty had a long career as a singer and appeared on stage, in film and on the radio. Her radio series A Date with Betty was scripted by a young Bob Monkhouse.

More programmes from the series will follow next year.
