Anyone with even a passing interest in music is going to love this book, especially as it really lifts the lid off of a well-respected personality that you think you know. 'Whisperin' Bob', all laid back, mellow and 'really nice vibes'. Well think again; 3 wives, 8 children, a near-death experience and a feud with a fellow Radio One DJ are just the tip of the very deep iceberg that is the real Bob Harris.
Add to this decades of being in the deep end of an ever-changing music scene and you are in for a great read.
Narration is first-class, and keeps you engaged and entertained all the way along.

What did you like best about Still Whispering After All These Years? What did you like least?
The early years were relatively interesting. A bit self aggrandising.
Would you recommend Still Whispering After All These Years to your friends? Why or why not?
I couldn't recommend it - there are better written books covering the music topic covered.
What three words best describe David Rintoul’s voice?
Not Bob Harris
Was Still Whispering After All These Years worth the listening time?
No - just too many lists of people that he has met that we are supposed to be impressed with I guess. I liked him better before I read the book but his story of failed relationships, money mismanagement etc. does not endear him to me as a listener. A bit like the Mick Fleetwood book in that you end up disliking the subject of the autobiography. If I was writing a book about myself I'd tend to em.. edit the bits that make me seem like a bit of an asshole.
Any additional comments?
One unanswered question - did he ever payback the £130,000 gift/loan to Bruno Brookes or was his OBE for services to hippy swindledom? The book leaves that question hanging.
