Best hour of listening each week

The best hour of listening each week. Ian and Paul do a wonderful job of talking football history - and revive the stories of the past long forgotten in our code.

Top Football Podcast

Fantastic to have a dedicated world footy station & not being able to listen all the time is fine ‘cause all shows are posted as podcasts. Great work. A must listen for all footy tragics.
