Gillie Potter - Heard at Hogsnorton - (VAR15)

Windyridge CD
Gillie Potter was very popular for his radio broadcasts during the early 1930s with his famous opening line: “Good Evening England, this is Gillie Potter speaking to you in English” which mocked the then pomposity of the BBC. An educated man, his humour requires an educated audience for its full appreciation. This CD contains all of Gillie Potter's published recordings together with an advertising disc which he made for "University Motors".
