5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fun! 21 Mar 2013
By D. Eastwood VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Really love Pam Ayers' work. This is so funny and shows that her incredible talent for making us laugh, through verse, has only increased as time has passed. Her poetry is so beautifully observant and comical. I was literally rolling on the floor gasping for breath when I heard " I was standing by the Cow"!
If you are already a fan you'll need no encouragement to buy this. If you're not familiar with her work, buy this and you'll be a fan for life.

From the moment I received it I soon realised my Christmas buying list had shortened considerably it is suitable for all my relations as we all enjoyed listening to her port shoems in the 1970's so it's memories and entertainment combined. Perfik!

I have been a fan of Pam Ayres all of my adult life. I used to own several records of her poetry.

This recording shows she has not lost her touch, still making me smile.

When the other 'artists' were talking however, it was sometimes a bit dull.

The poems were great thogh, timing perfect as usual.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Contained herein are four radio shows from Pam Ayres' latest series for Radio 4. Based around the these of the seasons, they contain reminiscences, poetry and sketches (sketches are aided and abetted by the smooth urbane tones of Geoffrey Whitehead). The poetry is up to Pam's usual standard, hitting my funny bone full on, but the sketches left me a little cold, lacking in a certain amount of oomph.

Two episodes per disc on two discs, in a fold out single sized jewel case. Liner notes are down to the BBC's usual terrible standard in this area.

In all 4 stars. There was a bit of what felt like padding, but enough comedy gold in the poetry to save it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ayres On The Air 4 11 Feb 2013
By romreader VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pam Ayres is one of the only people who make poems even more exiting by the distinctive way she tells them.With sketches and the poems divided up into topics over spring, summer, autumn and winter. The Christmas poem for me was the best out of the lot. Very carefully written with alot of comedy in parts the content of the poems is excellent and most have a little story within the Poem. Listening to the sketches were very different and again cheeky in parts just made by the tone of her voice, pausing in the corrct places. The woman is a genius in her field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Entertainment! 29 Jan 2013
By Mr. Stephen Redman VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pam Ayres may have an association with an older generation, but her poetic wit, her Somerset accent and her humorous insight into everyday affairs make her `good listening' to all age groups.

What I am trying to say is that this 2 hours of CD material (four shows, themed on the four seasons), is just good listening. You will hear no swear words, although there may be a little innuendo, but there will be no machine gun fire or brutal murder; this is just good wholesome family entertainment.

You will hear vast swathes of loaded adjectives used like a semi-automatic weapon. Ayres fires off her amazing descriptions and metaphors and under the pounding hail of her language you will collapse under the sound of your own laughter.

Her poems will not disappoint, with the usual range of weird and wonderful subjects often reflecting on her early life.

Her regular crowd of supporters are with her: Felicity Montagu and Geoffrey Whitehead. Their voices are rich in timbre and add a flow of richness that makes this CD a real experience.

This CD will give you a good laugh and leave you feeling hopeful about the day!

I have really enjoyed listening to these CDs on long journeys up and down the M6 I diidn't hear the series when it was originally transmitted. I think Pam is very underrated and after listening to these I bought her autobiography!
