A Great Face for Radio Summary

A Great Face for Radio: The Adventures of a Sports Commentator by John Anderson

How did a humble insurance clerk from Guildford with few ambitions beyond being able to afford a round of drinks end up roving the world covering some of the biggest sports stories of the past 25 years? From the Seoul Olympics to a freezing, rain-lashed hotel rooftop in Azerbaijan, A Great Face For Radio is John Anderson's hilarious memoir of his experiences in more than forty countries as the sports correspondent at Independent Radio News and a commentator for Sky Sports. While reporting from Olympics, World Cups and world title fights, he's been in the thick of several football riots, was almost arrested during the 1996 Atlanta bombing, had to flee bottle-wielding fans at a rap gig and survived gun fire during a high speed car chase to a Johannesburg brothel. He's rubbed shoulders with a host of A-list sports stars including Pele, Mike Tyson, Dame Kelly Holmes and Carl Lewis, and is one of very few people who have interviewed David Beckham in a French gents toilet. Among the superstar showbiz celebrities he's encountered on his travels are Jack Nicholson, Bo Derek and Stevie Wonder. Although not simultaneously. With a lovingly-written stream of laugh-out-loud anecdotes, fascinating characters and witty observations, A Great Face For Radio will delight sports fans and non-sports fans alike.
