Former Test Match Special producer Peter Baxter and commentator Henry Blofeld have increased run-rates as their new show soars in popularity.
The former BBC Radio cricket duo debutedMemories of Test Match Special, at a Stop Dorcas Lane Turbine (SDLT)campaign event, at Liscombe Park in May last year.
Baxter – a resident of Soulbury – was closely involved with the SDLT campaign which concluded in March this year with the turbines plan for the Stoke Hammond area turned down by planners.
Having received positive feedback from the audience, Baxter and Blofeld toured their show in the summer and autumn of 2012.
As colleagues for 34 years, the pair were lunching at a pub two years back when the owner suggested they do a show.
Baxter said: “The next I knew we were having lunch with his agent. I’ve had many wives or daughters come up to me saying how they were dragged along but thoroughly enjoyed it.
“You don’t have to know about cricket to enjoy it.”
Blofeld and Baxter have recently enjoyed a three-week spell at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Baxter said: “We gained increasing audiences throughout the time. They took it very well.”
The duo are set to perform at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre on Friday (September 6).
