Sir Terry Wogan KBE was born in Limerick. After leaving college he went into banking and five years later joined RTE as a newsreader/announcer. In 1969 Terry stood in for BBC Radio's Jimmy Young and later that year was given his own daily shows on BBC Radio 1 and 2. In 1972 he took over the prestigious morning show slot and it's been downhill since then. Terry's extensive television credits include his live chat show series WOGAN, THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST and COME DANCING, to name but a few. In a moment of weakness, the Queen honoured him with a knighthood in 2005. He is married to the sainted Lady Helen, the present Mrs Wogan, and has two sons and a daughter. http://www.terrywogan.com/ https://twitter.com/terry_wogan
'It's my feeling that whatever's bothering you, you ought to be able to say it in less than 500 words. The rest is window-dressing ...Probably explains why I didn't write WAR AND PEACE...' Sir Terry Wogan has been busy over the past 10 years writing his ever-popular SUNDAY TELEGRAPH column. In this first collection of the very best of his weekly musings, Terry delivers his distinctively dry and amusing views on life. From the disappointment of the declining years, the ubiquity of TV cooks ('Nowadays, you can't throw a stone in a country road without hitting a television chef, in full colour'), to vanity and those little daily annoyances that drive you to drink, he never fails to entertain.
