In which radio brings to life curious events of the past and present
The original 'Strange to Relate', in which music, history, and personalities combined to tell their own anecdotes, was broadcast in April 1936. Letters poured in from listeners, one enthusiast saying: 'Strange to relate, we want more.' The series has never waned in popularity, even surviving the war. It was regularly on the air from September 1939 to February 1940, and the present series has been running since August.
It gives listeners a chance to have some strange incidents in their own lives put on the air, and Mike Meehan is always on the look-out for interesting stories to include.

At sixteen Tom Jenkins got a job in a cinema at Thirsk at Â£2 10s. a week. After playing in various cinemas he joined the quartet at the Royal Baths, Harrogate; the Hastings Municipal Orchestra; the Celeste Octet; the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne.
