Radio 4 features Bill Mitchell
A special documentary about the legendary voice-over Bill Mitchell is to air on BBC Radio 4, Thursday at 11:30am.
Bill was best known for his commercials for the likes of Carlsberg and Denim, plus his movie trailers. But in the radio industry, he was very popular as the station voice for many radio stations, including Radio Caroline.
The half hour programme features contributions from Bill's daughter Amanda McAllister, musicians and friends Zoot Money and Kenny Clayton, and industry moguls Nick Angell and Rob Townsend.
Bill died in 1997 after a lifetime of drinking and smoking to maintain his trademark voice.
