2000 Years of Radio | Tempest FM

"It's 23rd April 1616 (approximately) - the day William Shakespeare died. Follow events as they unfold, as the nation mourns the playwright. DJ Suzanne Canker talks to and annoys his widow Ann Hathaway. 'Bard-Beard' sales rocket, Grayson Spey tries his hand at that sonnet-writing thing, plus more easy listening with mad Bessie, psycho Bob and pervert Archie. Series tapping into the radio archive of a bygone age."
