Off Air

Regular listeners may have noticed that we have gone off air slightly earlier than normal this year, our apologies for that.

Anna is in Argentina with the Hockeyroos where they reached the final of the Champions Trophy and took Argentina to a shoot out, but sadly lost. Simon is in India with the Kookaburras at the men’s Champion’s Trophy where Australia are looking to revitalise their squad and are blooding players for the future.

Regular host Ashley is currently in Europe filming for two documentaries that he is currently working on, one ( “Fight in the Dog”) about three Irish rugby players who all played for the same club, all played for Ireland and all were awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest military honour in Britain. The other (“Return to Your Corner”) is about the first ever African born World Boxing Champion who is in the record books as being French, as this was the colonial power at the time.

That left John all alone in the studio, and as he has worked tirelessly through the year at the station and working on Not the Footy Show, it seemed only fair that he be given an early break this year.

We hope to be back again in 2015 as the show is now in its 9th year and has aired over 400 shows and 75 sports. We will keep you posted here and on Facebook.

From all of us at the show have a great Christmas and a healthy 2015.

Tonight on Not the Footy – 26 May 2010

You would think it would be hard to keep making a sports show interesting week in week out, but when you have so many sports to talk about and guests who excel it really makes life easy.
Once again we have a fascinating show lined up for you this week.

Football
We will be talking Football with WA’s only ever Captain of the Socceroos Gary Marrocchi, as he prepares his team of former players to defend their World Masters title in Thailand. No doubt he will also want to talk about the World Cup which starts in under three weeks.

Baseball
We will be catching up with Shane Tonkin whose name for many years was synonymous with Baseball about his new role with Hockey Australia and the challenges ahead. For those who don’t know Shane was a youth international at Hockey as well as an Olympian with his baseball!

Squash
We will be catching up with Glynn Bunting to talk Squash, as Perth’s Squash factory prepares to host the Black Knight Open which carries WISPA status and will feature world ranked players representing six different countries.

Kite surfing
We will also be catching up with Kite Surfer Tony Loxton who is off on a very different kind of Safari. He is going on a kite- surfing safari to Madagascar, and tonight he tells us how this came about and what he expects.

Rugby league
We will also be talking Rugby league with a man who can genuinely be called a legend of the game, the one and only Gordon Tallis.

Netball
We will also catch up with one of the girls from the West Coast Fever following their recent attempt to halt the Swifts unbeaten run, and as they prepare for another home game next Monday against the Pulse.

Tonight on Not the Footy Show – 19 May 2010

One Perth Sports show was hailed as the most “intellectual sports show in Perth,” and congratulations to them, our boast is that we are the most diverse sports show in Perth and possibly the most interesting, if you are a true sports fan.

So be sure to tune in tonight and you be the judge.

Speedway
The Speedway Sedan Racing Club held their awards night last weekend and we catch up with Kodee Brown from Broome who picked up one of the awards.

Polo
We will stay in Broome to talk to Janek Gazecki who is hosting the first Polo on the beach tournament there this weekend. It sounds extremely civilised, and will hopefully become a regular event.

Fencing
A fortnight a go we spoke to Sutherlan Scudds as he had won his first national fencing title, he was off to Thailand that night to take part in a World event, tonight we will find out how well he fared.

Netball
The West Coast Fever had a bye last week at a time when most of them wanted to be on the court and maintain the momentum of their win over the Vixens. Tonight we catch up with Leah Shoard as they prepare to take on her old club the Swifts.

Snooker
We had hoped to talk to Neil Robertson, the newly crowned Snooker Champion last week, but his partner went into labour during the show, so he was otherwise engaged. This week we hope he is a little more relaxed and can have a chat with us.

Football
Football West finally have a new CEO, a man with a fantastic resume, Peter Hugg, we will be talking to him about whether he feels the pressure of being hailed a possible messiah for the game in Western Australia.

Mountaineering
We will also be talking mountaineering as a team from Perth embark on a trip to scale Mont Blanc, they are doing this to raise funds for the cancer ward at Princess Margaret Hospital for children, and Rick Parish will tell us about the trip and the fundraising dinner this weekend.
