Ward round

WELL KNOWN Manchester radio presenter Dave Eager was a studio guest on several shows over the years. On this occasion in November 1987, the 'Eager Beaver'went walk-about to chat to some of our listeners around the wards. Dave was one of the original line-up of presenters on BBC Radio Manchester, way back in 1970. Around the same time, he also worked at Radio 1 - where he famously deputised for Tony Blackburn on the nation's favourite Breakfast Show
