DICK BAR­TON

Evergreen - - Clippings -

SIR: My sis­ter in Cape Town for­wards me Ever­green from time to time, which she re­ceives from a friend in the UK. I do so en­joy the mag­a­zine with all the letters, jokes and old mem­o­ries. One par­tic­u­lar favourite mem­ory of mine was in the late For­ties when we were liv­ing in Kent, and I first heard the se­ries Dick Bar­ton Spe­cial Agent. At 6.45 each evening we all sat round the ra­dio to hear the latest episode of our dar­ing hero.

I’ve not seen this pro­gramme men­tioned in your mag­a­zine and won­der if any other of your read­ers have mem­o­ries of this thrilling se­ries. It re­ally was enor­mous fun. — MRS. AU­DREY GI­A­COMIN, BULL CREEK, PERTH, WESTERN

AUS­TRALIA. * We have men­tioned Dick Bar­ton sev­eral times and an ar­ti­cle about the pro­gramme ap­peared in our “On the Air” se­ries in Sum­mer 1989. I have no doubt though that he will make another ap­pear­ance in the fu­ture. — Ed.

One of the best- re­mem­bered ra­dio theme tunes of all time was “The Devil’s Galop” from “Dick Bar­ton”. A reader re­calls this pro­gramme.
