Sports Titles at AudioGO in October

9 Oct

After an amazing and unparalleled summer of sport, why not welcome the coming of autumn with a host of sporting titles to suit all tastes.

John Hartson

Our series of talkSPORT’s My Sporting Life continues with 8 titles this month. Each episode of My Sporting Life, hosted by Danny Kelly, features a 60-80 minute interview with a sporting legend as they discuss their career highs and lows, offering an amazing insight into what it takes to be a first class sports person  This month’s highlights include West Ham and Everton footballing legend Tony Cottee, Fulham, Liverpool and Republic of Ireland favourite Ray Houghton, Celtic and Wales’ John Hartson and for non-football fans there is Hull and Leeds rugby league great Garry Schofield and basketball’s John Amaechi. This month’s titles join the 48 which are already available. See all titles here.

Next up we have Martin Kelner reading his own humorous account of the history of televised sport, Sit Down and Cheer. After the blanket coverage of the sporting summer and the continuing innovation in how sport is presented to us on television, Martin delves into the history of how this came to be, adding his own unique charm and humour. From its humble beginnings (the 1937 Wimbledon tournament being the first live televised sporting event in the UK, watched by an estimated 2000 people with the quality being so bad that you couldn’t see the ball and had to follow the action by the ‘swing of the rackets’!) to today’s TV schedule dominance with its Snickometers and Hawk-Eyes, this is fascinating listening for fans of sport and TV history alike.

This contains the best four episodes from the first 2 series of the Radio 4 programme.  We follow Des and Christopher around various sporting venues throughout the country as they share humorous anecdotes and reminisce about legends of sport. If you’re a fan of our Johnners releases, you’ll love this.

More great sporting titles to follow next month…until then happy listening.
