Terry Wogan


Terry Wogan is a radio and television broadcaster who has mainly worked for the BBC in the United Kingdom for most of his career. He has been a leading media personality in the UK since the late 1960s, and is often referred to as a national treasure. Because his radio listeners are of a certain frame of mind, he jokingly refers to them as "TOGs" (Terry's Old Geezers or Terry's Old Gals), and at BBC Radio 2 he has become known as "The Togmeister".

Terry Wogan is a radio and television broadcaster who has mainly worked for the BBC in the United Kingdom for most of his career. He has been a leading media personality in the UK since the late 1960s, and is often referred to as a national treasure. Because his radio listeners are of a certain frame of mind, he jokingly refers to them as "TOGs" (Terry's Old Geezers or Terry's Old Gals), and at BBC Radio 2 he has become known as "The Togmeister". His BBC Radio 2 breakfast show is now the most popular on British radio. His tendency to go off on rambling, esoteric tangents, often including banter with his then producer the late Paul Walters, seems to have become popular with younger listeners, who appreciate his easy going style and flights of inspired surrealism) as well as the older fans.

The show is highly interactive, with much of the entertainment coming from letters and emails sent in by listeners (many of whom adopt punning pseudonyms for the purpose such as Edna Cloud, Lucy Lastic, Mick Sturbs or Hellen Bach), often with a surrealistic bent. One memorable occasion meant Wogan read an email from one Tess Tickles, without realising what the name was referring to. There are also running jokes involving Wogan's newsreader colleagues Alan Dedicoat, Fran Godfrey and John Marsh. Marsh having let slip that his wife was called Janet, a series of "Janet and John" stories followed, read by Wogan during the breakfast show. These are based on children's reading schemes but always end with hilarious double-entendres.

For example, when Marsh tells his wife about what he did in the opticians, he says, "Mrs Passey says I've got nice strong arms now [his spectacles had been repaired] and she showed me this little fir she'd been growing since she was a teenager, and let me trim it into an interesting shape using scissors." While Marsh actually means that he trimmed Mrs Passey's bonsai tree, Janet assumes he means pubic hair. A CD of fourteen stories, sold by TOGS in aid of Children in Need, has now raised close to GBP £1million. Read more on Last.fm.
