Hall of Fame

Neil Myners

You may know him as one of the volunteers who helps you find a seat but, away from the sessions, he is an award-winning record producer who has worked with most of the leading names in UK music radio, Bob Harris, Alan Freeman, Annie Nightingale Richard Allinson and Paul Gambaccini to name but a few. He has an incredible breadth of music knowledge, working on everything, from classical and opera, to world, alternative rock and dance programmes. Perhaps not surprising then, to discover that he is the man behind the questions on Radio 2's Popmaster quiz!
