Spit on yer hands and grab another hold!,

This review is from: No Off Switch (Paperback)
One of the most entertaining and informative reads I have enjoyed in a long time! Made me feel poignant reflecting on the loss of a golden era of radio and entertained with descriptions of friends and family along the way. Andy Kershaw knows who he is, and at no point does this touch the misery memoir genre (I'm sure his daddy would never have sold him for a pack of cigarettes). When the third wave of life hits, he voices an appreciation of the support people have given so he 'spits on his hands and grabs another hold'. In writing this, he carries on being a great public service broadcaster for me. Laugh out loud funny and incredibly poignant, a real achievement in writing. (Will now be the most colourful resident in Tod since the departure of Bin Laden's daughter in law!).
