From the Amazon site, where you can buy the book and the audio tape
One of the funniest books of the past decade, "Round Ireland with a Fridge" by Tony Hawks, is serialised on BBC7 digital radio each day this week.
You can listen from your PC, but the recordings are only available for a week:
My favourite bit is where some fellow drinkers in a pub persuade him to take the fridge surfing in episode 2 or 3. Hawks is feted all over Ireland as the Irish love the lunacy of the idea: "You're the idjut going round Ireland with a fridge - have a pint."

If you want to listen to the first episode (broadcast Monday 20 March), today, Sunday, is your last chance. And then the subsequent episodes disappear day by day on BBC7's weekly rota.
I've just finished listening to the last one and the series overall is as good as I remember, especially as it doesn't turn into an ego trip for Hawks, whose observations and inventive wit brighten the journey. Unfortunately, they do leave out one of my favourite episodes where he spends the night in a kennel for a bet and is visited by a local girl...
