This book is about the earliest days of one of the first BBC local radio stations and shows how brilliant local radio can be. The sub-title is misleading. Although there are many, very funny episodes, this isn't a quirk-fest but a serious argument for giving local stations their head - and sufficient resources. It could not be more relevant at the present time, when BBC local radio is facing a truly devastating cut of 20 percent of its budget overall. I've often suggested to people I've met from the BBC that they should buy this book up, reprint it and give a copy to all staff when they join.

I was lucky to be a teenager in Leeds when Phil Sidey and his piratical crew started Radio Leeds, and to interview him for The Guardian when the book was published. It has always puzzled me that it is not better-known. I'd rate it as a classic of writing about radio.

I must declare an interest - my father was one of the first Radio Leeds staff and is mentioned several times in the book, I was seven when Radio Leeds started and remember being at the opening and heavily involved over the years as teaboy, children's book reviewer, technician and (eventually) daytime presenter. This book might seem to an outsider to be full of mad stories and wild exaggerations. It isn't. Please, somebody, republish it!
