    Hi Herlock - I haven't been to Oz either but I have been to New Zealand and rather surprisingly bumped into Thommo there a couple of years ago. Less surprisingly perhaps, it was in the bar of Auckland's Eden Park ground. Unlike the blood lusting fast bowler of earlier years, he was friendly and came across as a decent guy.

    If I can tune in my own wireless set, I'll give this new programme a go. From a bit of swotting up in advance, I do suspect though that some elements may be a bit too farfetched for my liking. Nothing like being openminded - and I'm probably not!

    More seriously, thanks to etenguy for flagging and starting this thread.

    Best regards,
    OneRound

    You were lucky! We had to walk twenty miles to the nearest toilet and when we got back our dad would thrash us to sleep with his belt!

    Oh, sorry....I got a bit carried away.

    BBC sounds App is your go to, you can listen to it on schedule or as a podcast type thing.

    Also, if you have Sky, Freeview etc, check the radio listings as some of them have regional BBC channels.

    You won't get it via FM or DAB though, your too far away.
