I claim to be the speaker who gets asked back. I believe this is largely because my talks are humorous and wide-ranging – from the charm of childrens’ illustrator, Mabel Lucie Attwell, to the cheek of Brighton comedian, Max Miller. Your choice.
As a BBC Producer, I was involved in the early days of local radio and can also recall the special magic of wartime wireless. Nostalgia is my speciality and it works! Another favourite is ‘Celebrity Spin’ in which I remember brief encounters with The Beatles, a flight to Istanbul with 007, Sean Connery, and an interview with the voice of Bugs Bunny in Hollywood.
About my Talk...
I do not require special equipment to be supplied for any of my talks although I do use a wind-up HMV portable gramophone with ‘Parish Pump Radio’ and a rare penny slot machine for ‘Celebrity Spin’. As far as my other talks are concerned, I simply stand up and deliver so these presentations are very popular at events where an After Dinner Speaker is required.
Duration? Totally flexible. I do have my own BBC stop watch!
