Football commentator Peter Drury joins Jack and Olly to talk about the forgotten brilliance of Peter Jones, a commentator synonymous with football on the radio in the 70’s and 80’s and the voice of football for Peter when growing up.
This pod pulls back the longbow and shoots an arrow at the following:
• Why Peter Jones was a master of the mic
• Balancing superstition with listening to crackling medium wave radio
• Gordon Smith’s ’83 FA Cup Final miss
• The inside line on THAT goal by Kostas Manolas
• The pure heartache of using the right line at the wrong time
• …and what does a Kenyan radio programme think of Peter Drury?
