Kenny Everett returns to BBC Radio Solent

Two of Kenny Everett’s BBC Radio Solent radio shows from 45 years ago are being rebroadcast to mark 21 years since his passed away.

Also, Kenny On The Solent, hosted by Richard Skinner, will be a celebration of Kenny Everett’s time on the station. The special programme will hear from his friends and colleagues about why a broadcasting legend ended up on a radio station on the South Coast.

It will also feature exclusive rediscovered material from his time on local commercial radio in Portsmouth by Andy Ferris from Radio Victory, who discovered the master tapes in a collection of reels he bought.

Senior Producer Richard Latto said: “We’ve managed to track down two of Kenny Everett’s BBC Radio Solent shows. They haven’t been heard in over 45 years so I’m digitising them so we can rebroadcast them.”

The tribute to Everett will air on Bank Holiday, August 29 at 12pm, hosted by Richard Skinner (his first show back at Solent since 1973!). It will include the two full shows from the Radio Solent archive.
