Just over thirty years ago, a little-known poet named Pam Ayres made her debut on the ITV talent show Opportunity Knocks. Since then, she has taken the nation by storm, entertaining millions of people with her books, stage shows and radio and television appearances. Her first BBC Radio 4 series, Ayres on the Air, was a huge success, and this second series proves to be every bit as droll and delightful. A mix of comic poetry, sketches, and observations on life, each programme is themed around a different subject: Fame, Animals, Travel, Motherhood, The Old Days and Food. Here are much-loved poems such as 'Do You Think Bruce Springsteen would Fancy Me?', 'I'm Going to Be Surgically Enhanced', 'Clamp the Mighty Limpet', 'How Can That Be My Baby?', 'The Dolly on the Dustcart', 'With These Hands' and 'Thoughts of a Late-Night Knitter'; and sketches about the frustration of calling rail enquiry lines, the art of text messaging, and trying to stick to a diet. These six programmes show the inimitable Pam Ayres at her warmest and wittiest, and are guaranteed to amuse and delight her many fans.
