BY THE SAME AUTHOR:-
For 32 years Allan Barham covered the whole of North Wales for the BBC and in his book Radio Reporter he tells of the most amazing characters, like the woman who took her army to invade London on a bus, and the man who set out for Australia in a floating lorry, hugging the coast....and stories like the spy school, the devil locked in a box, and the holy grail locked in a bank vault.
He recalls a vast range of stories, and he also takes you deep into the secretive and fading world of radio broadcasting to reveal how to survive in the job and outline the tricks of the trade he used to conjure up and maintain the magic of radio when many sought to devalue it.
So if you have a taste for the absurd, the curious, the bizarre, and even a few white knuckle rides, plus for good measure a shattering assortment of 'behind the scenes' disasters you can share a few of his favourite memories and nightmares.

"TALES OF THE OLD WATERLOO"
People from all over Britain and beyond know Wales from holidays and day trips, and "Tales of The Old Waterloo" by Allan Barham, tells of his family's struggle during the 1960's to re-open a monstrous and derelict hotel in the village of Betws y Coed, a beauty spot known by tourists the world over, and the home of some remarkable eccentrics.
The marvellous stories the author tells, like:- "The Night of the Hiss and Boom" ... "The Dog, the Plank and the Cycle Race" ... and ... "The Amateur Dramatics Disaster" - are ALL true.
Allan Barham has seen life as a labourer, soldier, coalman, actor and even "stand-in doctor" as told in this wonderfully entertaining book.
