Candid, Interesting & Humbling

If you've ever listened to JW on the radio over any substantial period of time then you'll probably have an affection for him. Listening to this audiobook will only broaden that affection.
His account of his early days at Radio London & Radio Caroline through to his years at Radio's 1 & 2 are very interesting indeed. His(and his wife's) account of his illness and their fight to overcome it are candid, humbling and rewarding to the listener.

Listening to Johnnie tell his own story is something that I personally prefer over reading the book.

All in all, you realise that you were right all along about Johnnie Walker. He's the real deal!
