In this podcast, Simon Moore and Matt Lorenzo join Jack to add vivid post-it notes to the cork board of football broadcasting about both their fathers' careers: TV football commentator Brian Moore and BBC football journalist Peter Lorenzo.
Both Brian and Peter were at their peak during a pioneering age for broadcasting in the 70's & 80's, with Brian taken into the hearts of the nation during his tenure on ITV for over 30 years and Peter a liquorice-infused voice accompanying sports fans on the radio throughout Saturday afternoons over the same period.
In this saunter through the past you can be guaranteed to find out: 
Simon's top 3 Brian Moore commentary moments (spoiler: 'it's up for grabs now' doesn't make the cut).
What it's like when Bobby Moore pops round for tea
Martin Tyler's definition of a nightclub
The importance of warmth in sports broadcasting 
Brian Moore's bittersweet night in St Etienne in 1998
