For approximately three decades, Brian Jacques worked for BBC Radio Merseyside as a presenter, hosting his own show of opera, comedy, and poetry.
Given that he is no longer on the air, it's impossible to know what that show may have sounded like.
A YouTuber made several recordings of Brian Jacques reciting poetry back in the day, and honestly it's nothing short of beautiful. I think I could listen to the man narrate a phone book.
Brian recites the poetry over a soundtrack...in the case of these, it tends to be jazz or opera. I couldn't find any record of the poetry he's reading, it may very well be original, but I'm not sure. If anyone has more information on the recitations, or you would like to transcribe these, let us know in the comments!
The video itself has nothing to do with Brian, just an accompaniment for the audio.
