If you could sum up An Evening with Dickie Bird in three words, what would they be?

A little gem

Any additional comments?

I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this, I grew up watching the tail-end of Dickie's career and he was always a great character. I look forward to listening to his other titles.

A very special man.
