dadcast …

The other week I was invited into the Imagine FM studios in Stockport to record an edition of the Bluemoon Podcast with my son Richard.


Richard is something of an ‘old hand’ on the  Podcast, and in addition to this one he also regularly features on the EPL Pod (about the English Premier League).

Unlike me he has a wealth of radio experience being a regular on the excellent Sunday Bluemoon Live evening show on Imagine FM , and a contributor to Key 103, Talksport and LBC Radio.

The show I was invited to contribute to was a new ‘theme’ where fathers and sons are invited to talk about their football experience – hence the name Dadcast.

The first of these featured Richard and I. In advance of the show and unknown to Richard I had taken a ‘phone call from the host – writer and journalist  David Mooney. David spent ten minutes or so  chatting through a series of questions that would later form the basis of a Mr & Mrs type section during the recording with Richard.


It was really enjoyable, as we talked about out time together as supporters and exploring our different perspectives on football and watching Manchester City. It also proved to be pretty entertaining and good fun, as my answers to David’s earlier questions were revealed to Richard after he had responded to the same questions.

If you want to take a listen, then you can do so here:  This is normally paid for content, but as this was the first one of these you can listen to the dulcet Mancunian tones of Richard and I on your ‘phone, iPad etc :
