Starting work for Radio Scotland in 1977, he was soon interviewing legends like Sean Connery, Billy Connolly and Peter Ustinov, and in the 1980s was lured to Radio 2 to take over Terry Wogan's spot. He has been with the station ever since.
Ken writes with insight into the world of radio and delivers lots of brilliant anecdotes from his interviews with celebrities as diverse as Rod Stewart, Keane and Burt Bacharach, who came out with the immortal line (edited out of the final version) "Phil Spector never put a foot wrong", before adding thoughtfully, "until he shot that girl, of course."
He also writes about bringing up his autistic son and - unusually - the happiness it brings him and his wife and the many positives of what is so often portrayed as a heartbreaking situation.

Good fun but a little short....
Ken, though he probably doesn't realise it, is a British institution and will end up stuffed, plinthed and on display in the British museum.
This is his story, read by him in his trademark avuncular manner.
The story is quite dark at times as he retells tales of some of the more turbulent relationships in his life.
It is a great listen for long drives.
My only niggle is that it is abridged and you can tell.
