Play It Again...Russell Harty

On BBC Radio Lancashire's new programme "Play it Again", Gerald Jackson delves into the archives and lets you listen again to some of the great programmes we have made over the years.

In the second show of the series, a young Gerald is talking to broadcasting legend  Russell Harty.

Harty - who was brought up in Blackburn - went on to become a well known BBC chat show host and the rival to ITV's Michael Parkinson.

The interview took place back in 1978. Harty died in 1988 and many top stars attended a memorial service held at Blackburn Cathedral.

  • "Play it again" with Gerald Jackson is broadcast on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm on BBC Radio Lancashire.

So good to hear Russel Harty again!He is sadly missed.

Please could you say "Good Evening" to my mum-in-law, Marie Wilson as you know a regular and dedicated listener of the programme. She wanted me to let you know how much she enjoyed listening to your interview with Russell Harty last week on your new "Play it Again" programme. She said it brought back a lot of memories - in particular the image of Russell Harty being walloped by Grace Jones for turning away during the course of an interview he did with her. Please could you dedicate a piece of music of your own choice to her - it always means such a lot.
