Broadcaster John Waite makes his pick of the best of BBC Radio this week.
This week a symphony to a strip of cement, as the M1 celebrates its sixtieth birthday. How Noah wasn’t alone in surviving a flood by building an ark - lots of religions have their heroes in the same boat. Harry Connick Jr sings Cole Porter and the cattle getting a spiritual send off to their winter pastures, We explore haunted castles and ghostly gibbets in Northumberland, get naked for a wintry ocean dip, and ram-bam-thank you-ma’am, it’s tupping season down on the farm. Gentlemen listening, prepare to feel very humbled.
