Still Whispering After All These Years by Bob Harris - Hand Signed Facsimile Playlist & Signed Paperback Edition

Hand Signed by Bob Harris to the Title Page
Paperback 1st Edition
New & Unread - Published 2016

From The Old Grey Whistle Test to his current shows on BBC Radio 2, ‘whispering’ Bob Harris has spent his life at the heart of the British music industry. In Still Whispering, Bob tells how the young music fan who moved to London and co-founded Time Out while seeking his big break ended up being presented with an OBE for his services to music broadcasting. Bob performed backing vocals for Bowie, saw Arthur Brown set his hair alight performing ‘Fire’, met young hopeful Elton John, was mobbed with Marc Bolan and T Rex, got spiked with LSD watching Bob Marley, spent time with Brian Wilson during his reclusive years, partied with Led Zeppelin and toured America with Queen. He has caroused with Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper, been serenaded by the Bee Gees with ‘Tragedy’ before its release, jammed with Blondie, interviewed everyone from Lennon to Lou Reed and been punched by a punk. He is now bringing country music to an appreciative British audience as well as championing great musicians across the spectrum.

Along the way Bob has married three times, gone bankrupt, fought cancer and Legionnaires’ disease, weathered a public spat with a fellow DJ and had to revamp his career four times. Throughout all these years, however, his love of music and talent for broadcasting has endured and won him generations of new fans. With amazing photographs from Bob’s extraordinary career, Still Whispering After All These Years is the vibrant and inspiring tale of a broadcasting legend.

About the Author: “Whispering” Bob Harris, OBE is one of the nicest people we have ever met, he has been at the very heart of UK music scene for the best part of fifty years. He has established a worldwide reputation as one of the most trusted and influential broadcasters of his generation - described by Radio Times as “...one of the greats of British contemporary music broadcasting” and by The Mail On Sunday as “a national treasure”.

Each book is supplied with a faithful reproduction of one of Bob's original BBC playlists
