Episode 58 – Interview: Ian Crocker
Sky Sports commentator Ian Crocker joins Daniel Gray to talk Scotland, Serbia and Somerset Park. In the first part of a chat that oozes love for the Scottish game, Ian talks about his commentary career thus far, from the highs (co-commentating with Bobby Moore…) to the lows (Having “You’re just a fat Harry Potter” chanted at him…), and gives unique insight into broadcasting in the time of Covid. Then, Dan joins an emotional Ian again the morning after the Belgrade night before to ask him about commentating on Scotland’s incredible victory over Serbia, and what it means to an entire nation.

Daniel Gray is joined by Alan McCredie for a conversational journey through the heartlands of Scottish football. The pair delve into the pages of their new book, Snapshot (published jointly by Nutmeg and Birlinn Publishing), recounting their Saturday roaming from Lowland to island in search of stories, scenes and scraps (from chippies).

Interview: Don Masson
Daniel Gray is joined by former Scotland international Don Masson, the man who infamously missed a penalty at Argentina ’78. The pair discuss Don’s early days in Banchory and the spiritualist who forecast his career, his move to Middlesbrough and his playing days at Boro, Notts County and QPR. He talks about a crucial penalty he did score – the one that helped Scotland to the World Cup – and the chaos surrounding the Argentinian campaign. And of course, Don reveals his feelings about THAT spot-kick, for which he is ‘Still Saying Sorry’, the title of his new autobiography. A fascinating glimpse into a man who should be remembered for far more than a Peru penalty.
