Jonathan Agnew, known to his legions of Test Match Special fans as "Aggers," has at long last written a personal tribute to his late colleague Brian Johnston, universally known as "Johnners. It is said that traffic on British motorways came to a complete standstill as commuters were forced to stop their cars due to fits of laughter while listening to it on Radio Four. This book is an affectionate account of a four-year friendship, including copious anecdotes from their time together in the commentary box and during their travels overseas.
His wit, warmth, and great sense of fun was not only a feature of his cricket commentary, but also in the way he lived his life.
Our friendship has been immortalized through the "leg over" incident, but there was a much deeper bond between us than merely that hilarious broadcasting classic, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share this with cricket lovers everywhere. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages.

I remember listening to Johnners and Aggers, waking up in the early hours of the morning to listen when England were playing overseas, and playing my Walkman radio between classes. This is a wonderful read, bringing back plenty of memories.
It's pure Agnew; you can hear his voice as you read it. Given its date of publication, I was surprised - and happy - to read of events that took place in , even if the Pakistan scandal of the summer has no mention. The only downside of this book was that it had to end, which is probably why I tried to delay getting to that moment for as long as possible!

I fear we will never see his like again, A piece of old colonial England disappeared with his passing. A real joy to read and had me crying tears of laughter and sadness and left me with a sense of melancholy nostalgia for the days of the mid eighties when, instead of revising for O levels I would be listening to Johnners and the TMS team.
Thanks for the book Aggers.

A quality read and some excellent arguments at the en A really excellent read for those who have ever heard the wonderful Johnners. A quality read and some excellent arguments at the end, lots for the administrators of cricket to take on board, although they probably won't, sadly! Oct 13, Keri rated it it was amazing. A great story of cricket and the life of Brian Johnston told by none other than Aggers.
