This is What I Look Like  by Theresa Talbot is full of joyful and insightful tales from one of Scotland’s best known radio voices. It will be published on 2 November.

“It’s fun being me. Loads of people know what I sound like, but hardly anyone recognises me.”

In this voyage of self-discovery, TT (as she’s known to the likes of Fred McAulay) entertains us with us a life-story many will relate to: trying numerous occupations in the 1980s and 1990s (from bank clerk to Pepsi Challenge girl); recognising the need to self-educate; and eavesdropping on a No.66 bus…and thus ending up at the BBC, Radio Clyde and Q96 via AA Roadwatch. (That happens to everyone…doesn’t it?)

Theresa reveals how she stole (there’s no other word for it) a milk float as a young child, with disastrous consequences. She recalls her trepidation at the prospect of producing Lulu and explains why she talked non-stop to Andy Williams and how she blew a chance to sing with Glen Campbell. Along the way, she gives an insider’s guide to presenting Traffic & Travel and points out the importance of hairdressers to comedy careers. Plus, there’s a hilarious guide to having a stress-free Xmas.

Oh, and in case you are still wondering…this is what she looks like.
