The programme The Loneliness of The Goalkeeper – click to listen presented by Hardeep Singh Kohli, produced by Adam Fowler has won a – Third Coast Directors Choice Award.
at the Third Coast International Audio Festival.
Amongst Hardeep Singh Kohli’s guests is none other than Murray Lachlan Young who declaims his ballad The Lonliness of the Goalkeeper- about 14 minutes in – as well as sharing his own personal experience of being a goalie…. Other guests include former Arsenal goalkeeper Bob Wilson!
Personally I was never good enough to even reach the dizzy height of goalie. As my mother kindly pointed out one afternoon – I was very good at running up and down the wing usually in the opposite direction to the ball. My footballing moment of glory came at primary school where I basked in the glory of praise from Mr Green after I responded to a loud call of ‘leave it’ by running over the ball and away. It was a move that was later described as an excellent dummy! Cowardice sometimes wins out after all!!
Back to Murray we should be announcing some new tour dates in Devon and Cornwall over the next few days. All very exciting!
