From the cover: Brian Johnston, who died in January 1994, was one of the best loved figures on radio. His unique broadcasting style won him a special place in the hearts of listeners everywhere. When he died John Major referred to him as a giant among commentators. The Prime Minister continued: Over recent years he became almost the personification of cricket. He was a man who enjoyed life hugely and shared that enjoyment with millions. Summers will never be the same.
Although Johnners became known as the voice of cricket, he was also a national figure as the presenter of Down Your Way. His many other broadcasting credits include presenting for television the Queens Coronation and the Boat Race.
. Most of all, Johnners will be remembered for his schoolboy humour. This volume of tributes includes anecdotes and memoirs from colleagues and friends, as well as short extracts from Johnnerss own publications and transcripts of some of his most famous broadcasts.
