Ken Bruce - Poem by John Carter Brown

If ever you're feeling downcast
And thinking it's no use,
Tune in, you'll feel much better
When listening to Ken Bruce.

A jovial sort of chappie
And Scottish through and through;
Working for the B.B.C.
Each day on radio 2.

I used to think that Wogan
Was really very good;
But Kenneth is far better,
It must be in his blood.

He loves a sparring partner
On whom to hone his tongue;
And couldn't find a better one
Than good old Jimmy Young.

They go a round or two each day,
Before I have my dinner;
Jimmy gives it all he's got
But Ken comes out the winner.

Yes, if ever you're feeling downcast
And life just seems no use,
Tune in, you'll feel much better
When listening to Ken Bruce.

(Written Jan 1996)


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I used to love the banter between these two when they were changing over at 12 o'clock, and it took me ages get used to Jeremy Vine, after Jimmy retired.
