In the age of Brexit and Donald Trump, is the world now being run by Radio 2 listeners? If you listen to Radio 4, Brexit was a shock. If you are a Radio 2 listener it wouldn’t have surprised you at all.

Jeremy Vine has been presenting his BBC Radio 2 show since 2003 and calculates that he has taken more than 25,000 calls on topical subjects – both big issues and small ones: from life and love to lollipop ladies and poisonous plants.

A memoir punctuated by vivid anecdotes, laugh-out-loud moments and tips learnt via Eggheads and Strictly Come Dancing, Jeremy Vine explains what it’s like to hit a button and hear – totally unvarnished and unspun – the voices of so-called ordinary people. And why they are not so ordinary after all.
