'Lew Wright's intimate, affectionate book reveals aspects of Jack Davey's personality never glimpsed by his fans. With hundreds of telling anecdotes, in every one of which you feel you can hear the Golden Voice speaking to you again, it explores his reckless generosity, his unlimited gift of spontaneous humour, and the warmth of heart that endeared him to millions. It touches too on the troubles of his private life, and the illnesses and pain of his lat years. The Jack Davey Story is altogether an immensely readable book, full of life and fun, and in its closing pages tremendously moving.'
