Overview
What was it like to be a small boy growing up in Kingston, Jamaica in the 1930s? When Me Was a Boy tells exactly what it was like. Charles Hyatt remembers his boyhood in vivid detail, and in his own inimitable voice talked about it in his radio programme When Me Was a Boy. In this selection from those pieces, Hyatt brings his school days to life: the tramcar and horse-and-buggy days when cars were few and far between and taking a walk was a social occasion. These are hilarious moment -- look out for the Black Heart Man -- and historic ones, and Hyatt's sharp observation and remarkable memory put us right on the spot sharing his feelings and experiences.
