John Dunn

1934 - 2004




From 1958 the suave, calmly measured tones of John Dunn enhanced various BBC radio networks, none more memorably than Radio 2, where he established himself as one of the nation's favourite broadcasters. He fronted a range of shows including Housewives' Choice, Roundabout and Friday Night Is Music Night.

A broadcaster of the old school, Dunn pulled off the rare achievement of remaining popular in an altogether noisier, more frenetic age.
