The Much-Loved Book About Growing Up In The Suburbs Becomes A Podcast

My Childhood

So many of these stories take me back to my time as a kid going to Linton St with the old man.

Whilst I’m a decade younger, the very late eighties and early 90’s harbour so many great memories, non more so than catching the train for away games.

My only regret was that my old man bluntly refused to take me to Victoria Park.
