Bob Harris OBE

Bob Harris was made an OBE in the 2011 Queen's Birthday Honours List for services to Music Broadcasting

"I am delighted and honoured to be receiving such a prestigious accolade. Given that I have just celebrated my 40th year of music broadcasting on the BBC, and the 40th anniversary of the Old Grey Whistle Test, I feel truly blessed to still be doing something that I love so much. To be nationally recognized for my contribution to music broadcasting is incredible. I would also like to thank all the wonderful artists I have featured throughout my career - new music is the life blood of all I do."
