Welcome to Episode 18 of Glory Days of Gold. This week’s episode is brought to you by our sponsors John Scott Neill and KJK Installations. Much thanks and appreciation goes out to you all.
Recorded across two continents, Glory Days of Gold brings you a regular dose of East Fife FC and Scottish football chat, with a splattering of interesting interviews, fun segments, and music thrown in along the way.
Our feature interview this week is with the current captain of East Fife, and a man who has already won one championship with the club and is on the hunt for more, Kevin Smith.
It’s a fun chat with Kevin as we travel through his career from the early days at Leeds United and Sunderland, to coming back to Scotland with Dundee United and some team from Kirkcaldy, before heading back to England, then back to Scotland, then ending up at East Fife, where he will be starting his seventh season with the club.
There’s some great stories along the way including Danny Swanson pulling his trousers down in a petrol station in Dundee, having to explain to a receptionist why he couldn’t go on a date with her, punching a Rover, and find out why he cruelly threw one of Danny’s favourite woolly hats out of a speeding car!
There’s a lot more football chat as well as we talk about his dad ‘Pogo’, the current squad, and his hopes for this season and beyond.
Plus there’s lots of East Fife chat, we find out if Danny Swanson fancies a chocolate digestive, former Man United footballer Andy Cole features in this week’s football music section Wavelength, Ballingry band Paris Street Rebels feature in this week’s Have You Heard? and Stephen Mill joins us for our relaunched Who Are You? section.
