Welcome to Episode 35 of Glory Days of Gold.
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.
We’ve lots of chat and two interviews for you this week. First up is a man who had two spells at Bayview, he won promotion with the team 18 years ago, and is still very fondly remembered by the fans – Euan Donaldson. We talk to Euan about his time at East Fife, his journey to that point in his career, the success after it in the junior game, and lots more.
Our second interview this week is tied in with our latest Wavelength selection. Glasgow band The Eisenhowers released their third album last month and the last track on it, and the first single taken from it, is a football based song called “3 O’Clock On A Saturday”. Dubbed “a love letter to Scottish football” it’s an evocative song, made all the more meaningful by having our ability to attend football matches taken away from us just now. We chat with singer songwriter Raymond Weir about the song, how football runs deep in us all, and give it a play for you all to enjoy. It even namechecks Bayview!
All of that, plus we talk going back in time to watch famous matches, Cameron Barnes features as our Artists of the Month alongside the Methil and District Pipe Band, and we find out if Davie Beaton fancies a chocolate digestive.
