Old man Ian ,

Love the show

Driving along I find myself smiling and often laughing. Brings back so many memories from the eighties. I don’t even follow the AFL and still love it:)

KBronstar ,

24 carat gold

Brings back memories that otherwise would never have resurfaced, and turns them from daggy recollections into hilariously funny gems. Nailed it guys 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Wobbler2 ,

This is a brilliant story

As a footy fan who grew up in the country, listening to the story of a kid from the suburbs is as good as it gets.
