They soon found themselves treading the boards in the West End, at the Edinburgh Fringe, and travelling as far afield as Australia. The extraordinary characters who inhabited that commentary box – quite apart from the remarkable Blowers himself – featured prominently. There was the ebullience of Brian Johnston; the enormous thirst of John Arlott; the eternal scattiness of Christopher Martin-Jenkins; the mischief of Jonathan Agnew and a host of other walk-on parts.
On the Boards with Blowers looks behind the scenes of creating this unique show, as well as regaling readers with many of the side-splitting tales themselves. It is a book to be enjoyed by cricket fans and the general public alike.
