David Dunhill rose to fame in the 50's with a BBC career of 5 decades.
In 1967 it fell to Dunhill to close down the Home Service and introduce listeners to the new Radio 4 the next morning.
“This is the end of the Home Service for today and for all days. We’re like a bride on the eve of her wedding. We go on being the same person, we hope. But we’ll never again have the same name. Tomorrow, at 6.35am, we become Radio 4. So, goodbye Home Service, two of the best words in the British language. And still, I’m sure, the only answer you can give to the question: ‘What is radio for?’ — two words we shan’t erase. Good night.”
