Is radio important? Tony Currie thinks so. This golden voiced Scottish radio legend started broadcasting in 1972 at KPFK in Los Angeles started Radio Clyde, Scotland's first independent local radio station, became an announcer on Scottish Television, became Controller of Programmes for the Cable Authority, and the ITC, Director for BBC Scotland's television channels BBC ONE Scotland and BBC TWO Scotland, chairing both the Royal Television Society Scotland and the Radio Academy in Scotland. He has written for countless newspapers and magazines and has many published books. He created Radio Six International which syndicates its programming to 56 radio stations around the world.

We became friends when I was a BBC broadcaster in the 1990s and in this interview we waffle on about the history of radio, what broadcasting is and why it is important.

This is killer stuff and you only get this with Radio Richard.
