The story

A British Radio DJ who has held the unofficial distinction of broadcasting to the smallest audience in the country, has hit the big time after 44 years.

Deke Duncan, who’s 73, began broadcasting from his garden shed in 1974, but only to his wife through a speaker in his living room, as he didn’t have a licence. Deke Duncan has now been offered a one-hour special on BBC local radio over the Christmas period.
