More pitch inspections!

Another busy and varied show, with – amongst other things – a look ahead to the first Phoenix Fridays gig at the Old Brentwoods Club next weekend, previews of today’s Fourth Round FA Cup matches and news of which Ryman League games involving local teams survived the weather – something that seems to be becoming a regular feature!

Some brilliant music as well, including an exquisite song which I asked you to identify from these lyrics:

Oh, I thought we were the human race, but we were just another borderline case. And the stars reach down and tell us there’s always one escape!”*



*Word Up! was the title track from Spandau Ballet’s 1986 album Through the Barricades, inspired by the troubles in Northern Ireland:Word Up – Spandau Ballet – Through the barricades
