Johnners: The Life of Brian (book)


With his school boy humour and his distinctive, cheerful voice, 'Johnners' was a much loved cricket commentator and friend to millions of radio listeners and when he died in 1994 at the age of 81, the Daily Telegraph described him as 'the greatest natural broadcaster of them all'. Here is the true story of the man behind the microphone, including his controversial sacking from television and his re-emergence as a much loved figure on Test Match Special. Told with candour and affection, Johnners - The Life of Brian is told from the unique viewpoint of a son writing about his father. [1]
