Written and narrated by Edgar Lustgarten
If anyone asked the older generation of radio listeners which wartime enemy voice they remembered above all others, most would agree on Lord Haw-Haw. The laconic, sneering accents of William Joyce penetrating to practically every home in the British Isles, often accompanied by the orchestration of a flight of enemy bombers, is an abiding memory.
