On Monday December 11, Word In Your Ear is delighted to welcome Danny Baker back on its sofa. An old friend of the podcast, he’ll be talking about Going On The Turn, the fantastically funny third installment of his best-selling memoirs. This includes the launch of TFI Friday, meetings with the Stones, Led Zeppelin, Peter O’Toole, the foul-mouthed Hughie Green and a catastrophic trip to a European football match. He even wrings moving and extraordinary comedy from the miserable illness he suffered in 2010 and from the last days of his father, “Spud” Baker, who became the star of the books’ TV adaptation Cradle To Grave.
Anyone who went to any of the whirlwind shows on his recent stand-up tour will recognise this as a rare chance to see him in what we promoters call “intimate surroundings”. And you can buy a signed book while you’re at it.
It’ll be a firecracker from start to finish.
