Basil Brush is back on the radio this Bank Holiday weekend with a one-off show on BBC Radio Solent.
The fox has been on the telly since 1962 and previously hosted programmes for FUN Radio when GCap Media owned it (now Fun Kids). He’ll be co-hosting with regular Solent presenter, Louisa Hannan from 1-4pm this Monday.
Basil said: “This was an invitation from Miss Lou that I couldn’t refuse!
“It’s a chance for us to revisit some of the fabulous music I, and many of the listeners, were brought up with. Who doesn’t smile when they hear Mud, Glorious Mud by Flanders and Swann or The Laughing Policeman? Combined with my HILARIOUS jokes and a look back at some of my escapades over the past six decades, Miss Lou and I will bring you a radio show to remember! Boom Boom!”
Louisa Hannan said: “Basil is a joy to work with, however, he can rather naughty and unpredictable, so I’m expecting to be kept on my toes!”
