John Waite

John Waite chooses his BBC Radio highlights.

This week, John Waite's pick of the week brings you the Evita story the musical didn't tell you: how her embalmed body went walkabout for twenty-odd years after she died; there's the axe wielding Prime Minister; the essential books for a complete education - all displayed on a five foot shelf; we learn how to write the perfect love letter and how to spurn an unwanted lover by return of post; there be dragons in mid-Wales and unicorns in the Arctic, and Laurel and Hardy, the most beloved comedy duo of all time. In the blue ridge mountains of Virginia, we're on the trail of the love-able pair.
