In Around the Grounds, Peter shares memories and
insights that will fire sparks of nostalgia in every
Australian sporting enthusiast. From teenage years
working inside the grand scoreboard of the SCG,
to the pressure of auditioning for the ABC in front of
a childhood hero, and then through a long career
with the national broadcaster.
It’s the story of the sporting fan who manages to live
out the ultimate sporting fantasy: working as a
commentator with one of the world’s great sporting
broadcasters. Peter worked for ABC Radio Grandstand
for 18 years through the 1990s and 2000s. His name and
voice will be familiar to cricket followers around Australia,
and also to the followers of many of the various sports
the ABC has covered over the years.
This book includes several references to the Clarence Valley
where his family has connections that go as far back as the
1860s. Since 1972 his immediate family has owned a farm at
Shark Creek, near Maclean.
Peter lives in Hobart with his family. This is his first book.
