You're on the air!

Deke Duncan has always wanted to be a radio disc jockey, so in 1974 he set up a tiny radio station in the garden shed behind his house in England. For the past 44 years, he's been doing his own show. He's never affiliated with a actual radio station, so his only listener has been his wife.

Back in the 70s, the BBC did a story on him, and someone recently tracked down some of the footage. He was billed then as the radio host with the smallest audience in the world. But that's about to change. A BBC affiliate that reaches over 125,000 people each week is giving him his own one-hour Christmas special this year. And his wife is sure to be listening.
