Ayres On The Air - Highlights From The BBC Radio 4 Series

Writer, poet and broadcaster, Pam Ayres has been making her fans smile for more than thirty years since her first television appearance on Opportunity Knocks. This recording is taken from four of Pam's live shows for her BBC Radio 4 series Ayres On The Air, and is packed with her usual mix of comic poetry, prose and droll observations on life.

Pam Ayres has recently been 'rediscovered' via her appearances on Radio 4's Just A Minute, That Reminds Me and Loose Ends, and Ayres On The Air has been celebrated on both Pick of the Week and Feedback. She regularly tours both the UK and abroad, performing to sell-out audiences.

Here, Pam can be heard delighting her public on such topics as holidays, families, ageing and country living. With sketches about being "Topless at 60", getting shingles up the Orinoco and the joys of buying a tractor; and poems including "The Wonderbra", "Littering", "Poor Dad" and "The Voice at the Foot of the Stairs", this collection showcases one of the nation's most popular poets at her very best.
