On this day

in 1946, broadcaster Alastair Cooke read his first 'Letter from America' [This link also has the audio broadcast] on BBC Radio. His weekly broadcasts continued for more than 50 years.

I didn't go out of my way to listen to them but if I was near a radio I would try to catch them as he had a wonderful voice and always told a fascinating and enlightening story, no matter what subject he had chosen as the weekly broadcast.
