Like Johnners himself - charming, witty and irrepressibly funny
on 12 October 2010
Ostensibly a book about the best-loved commentator on cricket of the 20th century, this book on Brian Johnston is so much more than that.
It provides a warm, witty set of recollections of behind the scenes on Test Match Special both during the time Brian Johnston and Jonathan Agnew spent together at the microphone, and afterwards too.
Like the best of the commentary from Test Match Special, this sparkles with humour, with cheeky stories and wind-ups, and is told in the warm, conversational style that listeners to TMS have become accustomed to from the BBC's cricket correspondent.
All in all - rather like the rain breaks on TMS - this offers Aggers the opportunity to let loose from the commentary and enjoy the freedom to reminisce as one story leads naturally on to another.
Perfect for everyone who's missing their fix of TMS until the Ashes!
