1488. Churchill’s radio broadcasts

He always listened to Sir Winston Churchill making speeches on the radio. This was during the Second World War of course. He would spend almost an hour before the broadcast began tuning the radio exactly so he could hear Churchill loud and clear. Not a word was to be missed.

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills…

God help anyone who as much as muttered or coughed during the broadcast. He was fixated.

Once Churchill’s speech had finished it was always the same; Eva Braun would say, “Hurry along now, Adolf darling. Dinner’s ready.”
