As a young rising star in radio at the BBC, Pete Myers interviewed some of the most memorable people in the entertainment world of his time. He decided in 1972 to keep a record of his impressions of these “brief encounters” in a personal diary. Many years and many diary volumes later, Pete recorded his memories in three programmes for Radio Netherlands, offering quite a few surprising insights into some of the icons of the 1970’s.
Part 1: The first of a series of entertainment programmes in which Pete Myers dips into his diaries and recalls a series of brief encounters with Eartha Kitt, Stephen Sondheim, Glenda Jackson, Louis Armstrong and Carol Channing.
