Wireless Wise brings together a remarkable group of seasoned radio pros for a celebration of BBC Radio in an unforgettable evening of comedy, music and nostalgia.
Together, these presenters have appeared on the airwaves for over two centuries.
Join Alistair McGowan, Reverend Richard Coles, Garry Richardson, Charlotte Green and special guest Richie Webb from BBC Radio 4’s 15 Minute Musicals as they reminisce with a show packed with hilarious anecdotes, sketches and music.
Alistair McGowan is a cherished household name, a master impressionist, a stand-up comic, an actor, a pianist, a writer of sketches, articles, stage and radio plays but is still probably best known to British audiences for ‘The Big Impression’ which was, for four years, one of BBC1’s top-rating comedy programmes – winning numerous awards, including a BAFTA.
Reverend Richard Coles is sometimes described as “Britain’s most famous Vicar”, a regular presenter on Radio 4’s Saturday Live and on Radio 2. He’ll have plenty of tales to share from his extraordinary journey from popstar to priest to Strictly Come Dancing and beyond!
Garry Richardson joined the BBC in 1974 and “here’s Garry with the sport” has been heard on Radio 4’s The Today programme since 1981, making him the longest serving member of the team and giving him a wealth of hilarious ‘behind the scenes’ stories to tell!
Newsreader Charlotte Green was once voted the nation’s favourite voice in a Radio Times Poll and is one of the country’s most recognisable and cherished voices. Charlotte is a great raconteur and can still be heard on Saturday evenings reading the football result on Radio 5 Live.
