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.
