Surprised, no-body else listens to this station?..........On a Saturday, they usually give prem goal updates as they happen, but during covid have been selecting a few past games and giving score updates as if live. Today the focus was on 'derby' games and they picked four ,from audience suggestions.
Wrexham V Chester was apparently the most requested pairing, and they chose the 'St Milner's day ' game, despite been played in the February. Was bizarre, following the action'as it happened', sending offs and all, the two DJs seemed to have not been told by the producer how each game panned out, which made it more interesting. Very unexpected Saturday afternoon listen, especially with it being a national radio station rather than a regional one.
Funnily enough we also received a bit of national coverage on ITV4 yesterday morning too, as our 1-0 away win at Tranmere Rovers in 1976 was a featured game on ‘The Big Match Revisited’. A very bizarre own goal proved to be the decisive moment.
