    Veteran radio and television personality John Gallagher’s salacious, voracious, and dangerously delicious memoirs of a life lived on the edge in the midst of some of the world’s biggest celebrities. 
     
    
    
    Long-time sportscaster John Gallagher has had close to four decades of hosting some of the top-rated radio and TV shows in Canada and, while he was at it, doing enough drugs to wipe out a small village. Along the way there was plenty of drinking, cavorting, and gallivanting with some of the coolest, biggest, and baddest sports stars and Hollywood celebs around.  
     
    
    
    In Big League Babble On, John spares no one, not even himself. Read about his nights boozing with the likes of Tony Curtis, Stevie Nicks, Colin Farrell, and Leafs head coach Pat Burns. Find out how partying with Gallagher saved Mark Wahlberg’s life. Or how he once came a little too close to Princess Di. And the time Muhammad Ali stole John’s Penthouse magazine … for the articles.  
     
    
    
    Gallagher is a pop culture Cuisinart and a walking — but mostly talking — sports almanac. From hot tubbing with Wendel Clark to his friendship and falling-out with Robbie Alomar, Gallagher has met (and often partied with) all of the greats. This book is your backstage pass.

    ‘There were always just the two of them, Robert and Liam, and there wasn’t one weekend when Robert went racing that Liam wasn’t with him.  They were a formidable force, and Robert only needed Liam in his corner, he didn’t need anyone else.’Louise Dunlop, Robert’s widow    When road racing fan Liam Beckett offered a young Robert Dunlop the use of a workshop at his house in Ballymoney, he didn’t realise that that it would change both of their lives forever. Beckett went on to become Dunlop’s right-hand man. For more than twenty years, he was mechanic, mentor, fixer, friend, practically family. Together, they lived an extraordinary adventure, one that took Robert from a virtual unknown to one of the most exciting and successful road racers of his generation. Now, for the first time, Beckett talks candidly about their incredible partnership – the struggle to get Robert to believe in himself, the long nights spent perfecting the bikes, life on the road and in the paddock and Dunlop’s determination to race and win, often against terrifying odds. Beckett was at Dunlop’s side every step of the way, for his victories at the North West 200 and the Ulster Grand Prix, for his incredible fight to race again after his near-death crash at the Isle of Man TT, and for the terrible crash that tragically cut Dunlop’s life short in 2008.A riveting behind-the-scenes book about Robert Dunlop – not to be missed.
