About your Host: Wesley Britton:

In the mid-'90s, despite being totally blind, Dr.  Wes Britton became a Mark Twain Scholar, traversing the United States delivering talks and presentations. It was during this time that his writing career blossomed, with Praeger Pub. publishing his first three books, “Spy Television,” "Beyond Bond: Spies in Fiction and Film" and "Onscreen and Undercover: The Ultimate Book of Movie Espionage." He wrote hundreds of book and music reviews, encyclopedia articles, a collection of his verse, and A string of novels, including a nine-book sci-fi series and "The Encyclopedia of TV Spies."   

Wesley delved into the world of radio in his college days, working in the newsroom of WVCS in the mid 70s. After moving to Dallas, he served as the weekend broadcast engineer for North Texas Radio for the Blind (NTRB) for 10 years. In 1979, he wrote and produced an award-winning radio campaign by his Wes Britton and Associates ad agency. He appeared frequently on radio and TV speaking on behalf of the disabled.

From 2007 to 2015, Wes co-hosted a major California radio show where he began interviewing celebrities. A parade of big names, including Loretta Swit (M.A.S.H), George Lazenby (the second James Bond), and film star June Lockhart, were but a few of the stars to grace his studio.

His latest radio show, "Flashback with Wesley Britton," has become a trailblazer in delivering exceptional content, securing groundbreaking stories and interviews. Now, his new “Remember Again” series joins “Flashback”  every other weekend to share entertainment history from the inside, from actors, musicians, to entertainment insiders who’ve shaped our lives, all our lives.
