Blowers back again!

Having listened to squeeze the orange - Henry Blofeld’s biography I wondered if his new book would hold anything new about his like in cricket or simply be a rehash of classic but told before tales. I plumped to listen just to hear that extraordinary voice once more and was so glad I did. Not only are 5he tales told in a way only he could tell them, there were so many new or enhanced stories that I need not have worried before my purchase. Filled with fun, facts and fantastic insights into not just his own but many other colourful cricket loving characters you really feel like you have been a companion in the commentary box for the last 50 years with the great man. I cannot recommend this as a worthy successor to squeeze the orange highly enough. Buy it and you will be entertained for hours!

Great listen

I've only got into cricket during the thrilling 2019 World Cup, but I really enjoyed these tales from Henry Blofeld, one of the greats of radio broadcasting. Hilarious and thoroughly entertaining, even for complete newcomers to the game like me. For most of us who can't afford to pay for all the sports TV and phone streaming subscriptions nowadays, Blowers and his talented TMS colleagues remind us how radio commentary can be just as exciting as watching a sporting event!

Expecting a red double decker

Brought back many great memories of listening to TMS over the years. Blowers voice is a joy to hear, and the anecdotes add to those memories. Radio isn't the same without hearing him.
