When Big Joan Sets Up 6th June – The Golden Hour Part 1 1992

When Big Joan Sets Up has been on BCB for sixty years this year. Starting in 1954 broadcasting to Bradford her Empires and Territories and presented by my great-grandad Aubrey D’Ascogyne Cope the early episodes have been lost to the nation and in fact only two survive prior to 2006.

One of these is from 1992 presented by my maternal uncle “Ravin’” Dave Bonkers-Cope and was broadcast this week to mark his untimely death of a severely unblocked nose due to years of Vicks abuse.

Or I’m on holiday so I pre-recorded a programme full of old records.You choose.

“Top one, nice one, get sorted” as Ravin’ Dave used to say.
