Benny Green

1927 - 1998




A professional musician since the forties and a journalist since the fifties, Benny Green brought his ‘voice of an East End London cabbie’ to the BBC.

With his quick wit and eclectic interests, Benny was a natural radio conversationalist. His regular Sunday afternoon stint on BBC Radio 2 gave him the opportunity to air his acerbic, controversial observations on the music scene, which attracted a large and loyal following.
