Format: Audio CD
The 2 cds in this package are from 2 after dinner speeches given by Johnners; both lasting about 1 hour.

The first one covers the story of his life, and includes many amusing anecdotes, that are made all the more funny by his way of telling them.
The second cd is based around cricketing stories, and is equally as engaging and humorous.

There is not a swear word or blue joke to be heard anywhere; one or two slightly risque but very inoffensive little stories is about as far as it goes. However, he does not need to be rude to be funny!

However, this merely makes the whole thing all the more enjoyable - even my wife, who knows absolutely nothing about cricket - was happy to listen to both cds all the way through, on a recent car journey.

Pure entertainment and nostalgia from a master raconteur and all-round nice bloke!

Excellent fun for those of us who grew up with Johnners. As he might say himself, it's always good to hear his stories again!
