The Bird and the BEEB Summary
Liz Kershaw's love of music has taken her from Rochdale to Radio 1 and beyond. After being plucked from a job at BT in the Eighties, she teamed up with Bruno Brookes on the nation's favourite breakfast show. It was the start of a thrilling career that has seen Liz mix with all the big names. From startling Tom Jones on the Radio 1 Roadshow to being left red-faced by George Michael and the Bee Gees and seeing the sights with Robert Plant. She's taken girl power tips from Dolly Parton, made records with Carol Vorderman and, as well as interviewing a host of stars, has rubbed shoulders with everyone in broadcasting from John Peel to Jeremy Paxman. As a female DJ - and one with a 'funny' accent - Liz has notched up 30 years at the BBC. Through crises over competitions to sex scandals, campaigning to save Radio 6 Music and fighting the case for women on BBC Radio, she has always tried to make her voice heard on both sides of the microphone. Now, in the The Bird And The Beeb, her honest, warm and entertaining autobiography, Liz lifts the lid on her life at the BBC and the real stories behind the headlines.
