Bob Harris OBE

“One of the greats of British contemporary music broadcasting.” – Radio Times

Few people have broken as many bands into the mainstream consciousness as Whispering Bob Harris. Through his work on BBC Radio 1, the legendary Whistle Test TV shows on BBC 2 and his programmes on BBC Radio 2, Bob has introduced musicians such as Elton John, Blondie, David Bowie and Bob Marley & the Wailers.

His passion for the music industry and his infectious enthusiasm infuses his work on popular shows including Bob Harris Country, The Bob Harris Weekend Show and Bob Harris Team Rock Radio.

When Bob gives his support to an artist, people listen and his shows have become the ‘Holy Grail’ for acts worldwide. His tireless promotion of new and cutting-edge music is second to none.

Type Of Speaker


One of the most interesting and relevant speeches that I have ever heard.
Colin Trotter, Managing Director, PDW Private Banking

I always thought it was Morgan Freeman and then I heard Bob Harris speak and I was like, ‘Oh THAT’s what God sounds like’.
Ashley McBryde

Bob Harris is a straight-up legend.
Chris Martin, Coldplay 

He champions the unknown, the obscure and legendary with equal zest and detail. He has stayed the distance, the good times and the others with character and resilience, always digging deep and deeper.
Robert Plant

At a time when media is ruled by the loud, the crass and the cruel, Harris is the anti-Cowell: a soft-spoke but fiercely witty presence, whose velvet delivery is as much a part of British rock culture as Roger Daltrey’s stutter or the rolled letter ‘r’ in Johnny Rotten’s invective.
Henry Yates, Classic Rock
