BBC Radio Cumbria Retro Match Saturday May 16th

Post by Adam29 »

To commemorate 30yrs since the class of 1990 bought the FA Trophy to Barrow for the first time. BBC Radio Cumbria will be broadcasting the match in it’s entirety on Saturday May 16th

Huge thanks to Stu1 on here for getting in contact with me and forwarding the cassette recordings of the game to the studio in Carlisle

So I'm guessing Radio Cumbria did not broadcast coverage of the game back then, hence they have no archived recordings of the commentary?

I (like many others) had a VHS recording of the game and I think the commentary on the tape was by Ian Chisnall of Radio Lancashire who was from Barrow originally and a decent local footballer in his youth.
We'll keep the blue flag flying here...

They did play commentary but with moving from the old studio to the new one they are in now they had lost it
