C'mon Get Happy: DJ Gets Gig After 40+ Years Broadcasting to His Wife

There's a 73-year-old guy in England named Deke Duncan who's always wanted to be a radio DJ.  So way back in 1974, he set up his own studio in a shed in his backyard.

 He was never affiliated with an actual radio station though.  So for 44 years, he's been doing his own show . . . and broadcasting to an audience of ONE.

 He plays it through a set of speakers in his living room.  And his wife Teresa is the only one who ever hears his show.

 Back in the mid-70s, the BBC did a story on him.  And someone recently tracked down some of the footage.  Back then, they billed him as the radio host with the smallest audience in England.

 Anyway, he's been doing it as a hobby ever since, but still always dreamed of being on the actual radio. 

 And now it's going to happen.  A BBC affiliate that reaches over 125,000 people a week is giving him his own one-hour Christmas special next month.  They surprised him with the news during a live interview on Sunday.
