MY husband, John, and I were recently reminiscing about wartime radio shows during the Second World War years.

We were only children then, aged four years old up to 10 years old.

We both enjoyed these moments, especially on a Sunday lunchtime, with the Billy Cotton Band Show, musicals from London, Max Jaffa and his Palm Court Orchestra.

Then there was Vera Lynn, the forces’ sweetheart, who is now 100 years old.

From Monday to Friday, you had Dick Barton and his Special Agent Big Band Shows, The Archers and farm life.

All happy memories of the war years.
