Episode 180 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Wavelength Special 2 - Songs About Footballers)
CiTR radio is in the middle of their annual Fundrive (their fundraising telethon to help keep the station producing the great shows it does). This is our first year of taking part in it, so we wanted to do something a little special and something a little bit different from our normal shows.
Our Wavelength feature on football songs has proved to be popular, so we're bringing you another whole show of them!
Our first Wavelength special was back in September 2015, Episode 129. That was on songs about and by football clubs. For the second special, the theme is songs about footballers, with all but one of the tracks also named after the player himself.
We've got songs for you on Peter Beardsley around his time as a Vancouver Whitecaps players; Manchester United and Welsh legend Ryan Giggs; current Scotland manager Gordon Strachan; Another Scottish legend, Kenny Dalglish; former Trinidad and Tobago striker Jason Scotland; a couple of punk songs about Diego Maradona and Bobby Moore; how QPR cult hero Stan Bowles brought two friends closer together; and an interesting track about Man City's former Georgian playmaker, Georgi Kinkladze, and rounding it off, a bizarre lounge session from Tony Adams and the Arsenal team, well kind of.
Have a listen and don't forget to let us know your own favourites for future shows.
