The last news bulletin has been read. After 39 years that’s, well, thousands of broadcasts. (A nice round four decades of newsreading duty was snatched away as the BBC axe falls this week). The voice of the nation at the annual Eurovision popfest. Years of getting up at dawn, or earlier, ushering in a new day before handing over the network to Wogan or Moore.
Colin Berry read his last Radio 2 bulletin at 3 a.m. today. Here‘s my small audio tribute. I offer two apologies, one for the awful punning post title, and secondly for the small indulgence at about 4½ minutes.
