This chapter explores Murray's long involvement with the medium of radio. His broadcasts ranged from classical drama to current affairs to memories of his youth; from translations to lectures to the Brains Trust, a programme which cemented his status as a public intellectual. The chapter includes a comprehensive listings of Murray's broadcasts, and of the subsequent publications in the Radio Times and Listener. His translations were broadcast on the Light and Home Services, and in the late 1940s, the new Third Programme added selections in the original Greek.
