This audiobook features the much loved, much admired Brian Johnston, the famous BBC presenter and commentator, known the world over as 'The Voice of Cricket'.
Reminiscing about his long life and career at the BBC, Brian talks about many of the diverse occasions and programmes with which he was involved He also indulges in his well-known love of (rather bad) jokes and puns.
In this revised edition of An Evening with Johnners, which contains previously unreleased material, the sheer warmth of Brian's personality comes across to the listener, and it is virtually impossible not to feel at one with the members of the highly appreciative theatre audience.

Johnston was of course known as "the voice of cricket", and here he talks, in his own inimitable style, about his long and distinguished career ...' (Included in Greg Eden's (Bertrams) selection of best adult audiobooks for the season) - Bookseller Sep 29, 2000, p39
