Wireless Wise – A Celebration Of Radio 4

50 Years Of Radio 4

Some of radio’s most popular personalities are swapping the airwaves to go on tour in a brand new stage show during Autumn 2019 and Spring 2020.

Wireless Wise – A Celebration Of Radio 4 promises audiences an unforgettable evening of comedy and nostalgia, with a show packed with hilarious anecdotes, sketches and music spanning 50 years. The show will feature Alistair McGowan, the Reverend Richard Coles, Garry Richardson and Charlotte Green, who have collectively been entertaining radio audiences for more than two centuries. The show will be hosted by Garry Richardson from the Today programme.

The tour will feature two special guests, Richie Webb from Radio 4’s 15 Minute Musicals, and Joe Stilgoe, a regular on BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night Is Music Night programme. Richie and Joe will appear at specified venues along with other surprise guests.

Joe Stilgoe will appear at High Wycombe, Eastbourne, Canterbury and Bournemouth. Joe is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter, whose live shows are a mixture of virtuoso musicianship and breathtaking theatricality, combining on the spot improvisation with quick wit.

Joe has toured the world both with his band and a solo performer. He works extensively on radio and has hosted BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night Is Music Night, as well as his own show on Jazz FM. He has guested on The Now Show and The Horne Section for Radio 4, and has appeared in the musical High Society at The Old Vic. Jo regularly enjoys sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
