A DJ whose shed-based radio station was only ever heard by his wife is preparing to expand his audience after 44 years.
Deke Duncan, 73, started playing records from his back garden in Stevenage, Hertfordshire in 1974.
He was the subject of a BBC Nationwide television report, recently tweeted by BBC Archive, prompting BBC Three Counties Radio to track him down.
He was then offered a one-hour special, which goes out on New Year’s Eve.
Listeners to the pre-recorded show, which will be broadcast at 18:00 GMT on Three Counties Radio, can expect some “old school radio”, Mr Duncan said.
“Radio like it was 30 or 40 years ago with a happy disc jockey, bouncing along from one record to another and just being real cool. It’s going to be rock and roll,” he said.
