Sounds of Summer

So the last two weeks have finally been a little warmer and there is a hint that summer may be arriving.

The arrival of summer can only mean one thing the cricket season has begun and Test Match Special returns to the radio. Unfortunately these days, televised live cricket is only available on Sky Sports, I don't feel that I can justify the monthly subscription to this, so my cricket fix comes via live commentary on the radio. This summer is especially important for cricket fans the Ashes will contested again. So in a month I will be spending my weekends glued to my digital radio, hopefully hearing some enthralling cricket being described by the great voices of cricket such as Jonathan Agnew and Henry Blofeld and with expert summaries from the likes of Michael Vaughan, Phil Tufnell and Geoffrey Boycott. Here's to a successful summer for the England cricket team.

One other thing I love about TMS is occasionally things go wrong, with hilarious results as these to audio clips will show. One recent and one classic from many summers ago.
