Every true supporter knows that football is best on the radio

Every true supporter knows that football is best on the radio | Radio resources | Scoop.it

Never before has it been so expensive to be a sports fan. Nor has it ever been more difficult – either financially or logistically – to watch sport from inside a physical stadium. The de facto next-best alternative has become television. I think it should be radio.

I fell in love with radio sport around 1995, aged 11, when I got my first portable radio. Bed-time in 1995 was early - too early - so I used that little radio to stay up later. Under cover of darkness, I listened to comedy on tape; to John Peel and Steve Lamacq; to random talk radio stations, and to football.
