We always enjoy being fashionably late to a party so one week after the World Cup came to an end we thought the timing was perfect for a football special. This gives us a chance to play some of our favourite sporting TV themes (many of which were written by KPM genius Keith Mansfield) including one by this year’s 75th birthday boy Tony Hatch (much more of whom next week). There’s also a particularly moving rendition of Nessun Dorma, popularised by the BBC in their coverage of Italia ’90.
We should make it clear that neither of us know the first thing about football, though this will probably become fairly obvious as you listen to the show.
