about

Nominated as Best New Writer at the 2010 British Sports Book Awards, John Anderson tells the tale of how a humble insurance clerk from Guildford came to rove the world covering some of the biggest sports stories of the past 25 years. From the Seoul Olympics to a freezing hotel rooftop in Azerbaijan, A Great Face for Radio is a hilarious memoir of his experiences as a radio sports correspondent and commentator. While reporting from Olympic Games, World Cups and world title fights, Johno has been in the thick of football riots, was almost arrested during the 1996 Atlanta bombing, had to flee bottle-wielding fans at a rap gig and survived gunfire during a high-speed car chase to a Johannesburg brothel. He has rubbed shoulders with stars such as Pele, Mike Tyson, Dame Kelly Holmes and Carl Lewis, and once interviewed David Beckham in a French gents toilet.
