Before joining us at Radio Netherlands in 1976, Pete Myers hosted BBC programmes like “Late Night Extra” and “PM” and spoke with some of the greatest artists in musical and theatre entertainment passing through London in the early 1970’s. This recording is from his personal collection, and it features the shimmering Texas-born lady of the American musical stage, Carol Channing (1921-2019). Pete spoke with the dizzy and dizzying blonde with the memorable voice just as she had become the talk of the town in London.
