Regular listeners may have noticed that we have gone off air slightly earlier than normal this year, our apologies for that.
Anna is in Argentina with the Hockeyroos where they reached the final of the Champions Trophy and took Argentina to a shoot out, but sadly lost. Simon is in India with the Kookaburras at the men’s Champion’s Trophy where Australia are looking to revitalise their squad and are blooding players for the future.
Regular host Ashley is currently in Europe filming for two documentaries that he is currently working on, one ( “Fight in the Dog”) about three Irish rugby players who all played for the same club, all played for Ireland and all were awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest military honour in Britain. The other (“Return to Your Corner”) is about the first ever African born World Boxing Champion who is in the record books as being French, as this was the colonial power at the time.
That left John all alone in the studio, and as he has worked tirelessly through the year at the station and working on Not the Footy Show, it seemed only fair that he be given an early break this year.
We hope to be back again in 2015 as the show is now in its 9th year and has aired over 400 shows and 75 sports. We will keep you posted here and on Facebook.
From all of us at the show have a great Christmas and a healthy 2015.
