STORY SOUND l JANUARY A LIKELY TALE, LAD Mike Pannett
For a young Mike Pannett, growing up in North Yorkshire in the late 1960s and early ‘70s was a dream come true. They really were the good old days. The summer holidays lasted forever and the sun always seemed to shine. Given a fishing rod, a bottle of pop and a jam sandwich, a lad could wander as far as his bike would take him, and the countryside was one big adventure playground. Like many a boy, however, Mike learns things the hard way. A bike ride lands him in A&E and a fishing trip almost ends with a shipwreck.
