‘There are many reasons to love Blowers, as he is known to fans. For the past half century, his richly rambling cricket commentary has been synonymous with Radio 4 and Radio 5’s Test Match Special. And his vivid observations of pigeons, passing buses, snoozing policemen and butterflies has become the stuff of legend.’
‘For 45 years, (Blowers’) fruity geniality has been as much a part of British summers as strawberries and cream in rain-lashed marquees.’
