78 REtired

Henry ‘My Dear Old Thing’ Blofeld has hung up his microphone after 50 years commentating on international cricket.

The cherished golden voice of cricket has decided to celebrate by touring the country with his brand new show, jam-packed full of unheard anecdotes from on and off the pitch, as well as stories from the TMS box not allowed on the radio!

Don’t miss the chance to wave a bat in honour to the last bastion of the original Test Match Special team; the team who made it the much-loved programme it is today. The summers of cricket will never be the same without our ‘Dear Old Thing’.
