BOOK ‘TT TALKING’

TT Talking‘the biggest compliment I can pay Charlie is that he became an iconic voice at the TT’ – JOHN McGUINNESS, 23-times TT winner and outright lap record holder

The idea of writing a book about my experiences as TT commentator began about eight or nine years ago. In my first year as commentator for Manx Radio there were so many crazy things happening that I began writing them down and ended up with a journal of the two weeks from my personal perspective. After a couple of years of this I realised that there could be the basis of a book if I kept doing the job long enough. The theme would be to describe the races in a way that hadn’t been done before, combining behind-the-scenes stuff from the radio operation with paddock tales and the main details of the racing.

Veloce, specialist motorsport publishers, took up the idea and the book ‘TT Talking’ was launched during the TT races of 2014, with a foreword by John McGuinness and photos by Alan Knight and Dorothy Lambert.

The response was brilliant and for a few heady weeks the book was top of one of Amazon’s motorsport best-seller lists.

It is available from bookshops on the Isle of Man including Lexicon in Strand Street, Douglas; from Veloce, and from Amazon. I hope you enjoy it and please post a review on Amazon.
