Publisher's Summary

Listen to J. Kingston Platt's amazing experiences in the wonderful world of show biz, including many indiscreet revelations, with names disguised to avoid libel actions and death threats. Based largely on distinguished actor Peter Jones' own experiences, it is a hilarious account of life on the theatre.

Surprisingly good

I mostly knew Peter Jones as the narrator in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio shows, so I kind of got this one on a whim, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Well-written, well-read, and quite funny in spots - made me wish he'd written more, actually. Worth getting!

J KINGSTON PLATT - WHAT COULD GO WRONG?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Sadly the sound quality at 32kbps is no better than dodgy internet sites out there - and given the price tag it is poor value for money. There is no way to transfer to an MP3 player and at three hours plus no track markings or index points - stick to the repeats on BBC 4 Extra where you can just love Peter Jones' wonderful creation in all his glory.
