"Eccentric, sentimental and homespun, John Betjeman's passions were mostly self-taught. He saw his country being devastated by war and progress, and he waged a private battle to save it. His only weapons were words - the poetry for which he is best known and, even more influential, the radio talks that first made him a phenomenon." "Now collected in book form for the first time, his broadcasts represent one of the most compelling archives of twentieth-century broadcasting, evoking for the modern reader Betjeman's unique perspective and the compelling magic of the golden age of wireless."--Jacket
