The Tracks of My Years

Front Cover
Pan Macmillan UK, Aug 27, 2009 - Biography & Autobiography - 320 pages

The Ken Bruce Show on Radio 2 is a national institution, much loved by millions of loyal listeners. Ken has been broadcasting for many years, although the suggestion that he was the first person to announce the retreat of Bonnie Prince Charlie's army from Dundee is untrue. Now he reveals how his dream of working in radio kept him going through the wilderness years of accountancy (not a successful career choice) and his stint at a car hire company (a surprisingly dangerous occupation in 1970s Glasgow). He finally landed a job at Radio Scotland and then switched permanently to Radio 2 in 1985, where he has been ever since.

Ken writes hilariously about the technical mishaps that often threatened disaster and the wonderful, and sometimes eccentric, characters he has encountered throughout his career. He also describes the many famous people he has interviewed, his fellow DJs and life at the Beeb. Witty and warm, this book is sure to appeal to his many fans.
