The Clitheroe Kid

The Clitheroe Kid radio show was broadcast on Sunday afternoons from 1957 until 1972, and attracted 10 million listeners at its peak. The star was Jimmy Clitheroe, the ‘eternal naughty schoolboy’ who also starred in films and pantomime over many years. It also featured Danny Ross (known as the ‘Oldham comedian’), Peter Sinclair, Patricia Burke and Diana Day. Tony Melody also made many appearances. A national favourite for all the family.
