Last weekend saw the 50th Anniversary of BBC Radio 1, and to help celebrate the event Candy Jar Books has released a brand-new, Kindle-only, short story called ’48 Crash, by Mark Carton.
Shaun Russell, head of publishing at Candy Jar Books, said: “Having grown up listening to BBC Radio, I’ve been waiting to hear what they had planned for the 50th anniversary of Radio 1. It seemed like a fantastic opportunity to celebrate a British institution that has had such an impact over the years. When Mark suggested that he’d like to write a short story to mark the event, I thought that combining his core idea with the Lethbridge-Stewart range was a no-brainer.”
The BBC One Roadshow is in town, but Lethbridge-Stewart isn’t one for leisure. A rogue analyst has discovered the threat of an alien invasion encoded in the lyrics of pop hits. With the festivities beginning, and fifty-thousand revellers in attendance, the Brigadier must get to the bottom of the mystery before musical mayhem is unleashed.
You can buy ’48 Crash on Amazon Kindle priced £1.29.
A PDF version of ’48 Crash will also be available to customers who purchase The Flaming Soldier from the Candy Jar website. It will be sent out later this week.
