The BBC and Local Radio - the People’s Voice?

Roger Phillips, LJMU Honorary Fellow and radio broadcaster will present a lecture entitled The BBC and Local Radio - the People’s Voice? The changing face of the BBC over the years and, in particular, the development of local radio with particular reference to phone-in programmes such as the one I’ve presented for almost 40 years.

Roger Phillips was born in Manchester, went to Cambridge University and then arrived in Liverpool as an actor in the early 1970s to join the Everyman Theatre - and fell in love with the city. He subsequently worked as a hackney cab driver, before falling by chance into local radio (BBC Radio Merseyside) in 1978, where he still presents a daily phone-in programme.

Registration required.
