Despite the all-pervading influence of television, an astonishing 90 percent of people in Britain still listen to the radio. We wake up to it, have it on in the kitchen, at work and in our cars.
In Last Train To Hilversum Charlie Connelly explores the place of radio in our world, as one of the very few genuinely shared national experiences.
Part nostalgic reverie, part social history, part travelogue, the book is Connelly’s love letter to radio, exploring our relationship with the medium from its earliest days to the present in a journey from the wireless to wireless.
