There are live illustrations of the music that graced the post war airwaves, played by Roger on his studio piano.

Meet The Speaker, Roger

Born in the industrial North of England, during the second world war, Roger’s upbringing was humble, but his recollections are dominated by indelible memories of humanity, care, love and, above all, music and lots and lots of humour. Roger is now, primarily, a storyteller. He draws on his incredible experiences of life and performance, to deliver an eclectic mix of creative music and hilarious tales, informing and entertaining special interest groups, the length and breadth of Britain. His live performances have spanned seven decades and three continents.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
