What My Listeners Say is a book punctuated by vivid anecdotes and laugh-out-loud moments as Jeremy explains what it’s like to hit a button and hear, unvarnished and unspun, the voices of so-called ordinary people – and why they are not so ordinary after all.  Jeremy  tells all in this hilarious and thought-provoking memoir of his life, his Radio 2 listeners and his appearance on Strictly Come Dancing.
