Terry Wogan is the national treasure of all national treasures. He makes you laugh for his faux pas as much as for his considerable wit and this candid and fresh autobiography is sure to provide tons of laughter and joy to the reader. Millions of fans have enjoyed for well over quarter of a century his myriad of appearances as an entertainer for the BBC and this book brings those memories together in a warm and witty way. A definite Christmas present for his many admirers.

Synopsis

Mustn't Grumble by Terry Wogan

Written in a style familiar to his millions of listeners, rich with warmth and irony, MUSTN'T GRUMBLE is Terry's definitive autobiography. Not only does he introduce the reader to post-Emergency Ireland, his chain-smoking maiden aunts, his quick-witted mother and hard-working father and the (not so) Christian Fathers who tried to knock his hands off, he explains how he's managed to avoid a hard day's work from childhood to knighthood, and entertained a few million people along the way.

Terry talks in full about his past 35 years with the BBC: his hugely popular Radio 2 show, his TV shows WOGAN (NOW & THEN) and BLANKETY BLANK, the Eurovision Song Contest, working on the BBC's Children in Need programmes, and where he learnt to breakdance so brilliantly. It is the autobiography his fans - and TOGs - have been waiting for: fresh, honest, a real craic and completely the same ... but different.

About the Author

Terry Wogan was born in Limerick and educated at Crescent College. After leaving college Terry went into banking, if only he'd stuck to it he'd be retired now(!), and five years later joined Radio Telefis Eirann as a newsreader/announcer. Moving to light entertainment as a disc jockey and host of TV quiz and variety shows, 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, SONGS FOR EUROPE, THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST, COME DANCING and BLANKETY BLANK, to name but a few. In 1993 Terry rejoined BBC Radio 2 to present WAKE UP TO WOGAN the most listened to breakfast show in the UK. In a moment of weakness Her Majesty 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.
