Comedian Richard 'Stinker' Murdoch had his radio break alongside Arthur Askey in the BBC comedy programme Band Waggon. Created as a light entertainment show, the pair revolutionised it with madcap comedy, much of which was supposedly based in a flat at the top of Broadcasting House.
Murdoch later joined Kenneth Horne for 'Much Binding in the Marsh' before taking on the role of a bumbling civil servant in The Men from the Ministry with Wilfrid Hyde-White and later Deryck Guyler. His radio career lasted for almost 60 years.
