Neil O’Brien Entertainment is delighted to present two of the titans of UK cricket with a side-splitting show full of memories from within the Test Match Special commentary boxes all over the world. The fun spills out from the globe’s most famous grounds to taxis, buses, beaches, deserts and hotels. Anecdotes never before heard of the most legendary players, in every sense of the word, from the last forty years are finally aired.
A sporting institution, Peter Baxter was the organising brain behind BBC Radio’s Test Match Special for 34 years and Henry “My Dear Old Thing” Blofeld, OBE is one of Britain’s most loved broadcasters. He has commentated on the show since 1972.
Don’t miss this gloriously funny show, early booking for Memories of Test Match Special is strongly recommended.
Henry Blofeld said, “Test Match Special is as much fun to be part of in the commentary box as most people seem to think it is to listen to. But, in the box itself there are two different perspectives and with Blowers and Backers on stage they will both come together with, we hope, gales of laughter. Backers produced the show for 34 years, for all of which he was my boss. He brings the ‘behind-the-scenes’ adventures he had in the production process to join my in-front-of-the-microphone stories and high jinks.
Our blend of stories about TMS at home and abroad will be hilarious and Backers had better watch it as now, at long last, he is no longer my boss!”
Peter Baxter added, “Test Match Special has always been like a family – and the listeners are part of that family. And like all families, there are so many stories of the characters in it. The two of us have been having a lot of fun talking about all the funny things that have happened during our 35 years together on the programme and we’re really looking forward to sharing that fun with audiences round the country.”
