The Sound of Sunday on HRB

The Sound of Sunday 28 February 2010

The Sound of Sunday has been running for nearly 19 years (we’ll be launching our new website for our birthday in March) and during that time, sport on a Sunday has become more and more important. 

When we first started, there was the odd Sunday football match, but nothing like what we have today.  No Six Nations rugby either.  We did have cricket of course in the summer and of course the formula 1 season has always dominated Sunday afternoons during the summer.

Nowadays, there is football every Sunday, sometimes 5 or more Premier League games, and we get to have reports from them all thanks to the team at IRN.

This weekend, we’ll be live at Wembley with our reporter following the first big cup final of the season – as Manchester United and Aston Villa battle it out for the Carling Cup. 

There’ll be a preview of the match and 3 reports live between 3 and 4, with another 3 on Harry’s show that follows between 4 and 5.  We’ll also be at all 3 of the afternoon’s Premier League matches. 

As the year goes on, other events to appear on a Sunday will include the World Cup football, and of course the new Foruma One season starts in a matter of weeks.  The last day of the Premier League is the big footballing Sunday and the busiest-all 10 games all kicking off at once with almost non-stop reports from around the Uk for around 2 hours.  We’ll await with interest that day in May!

Also on the show this week, we’ll squeeze in all the regular features including Myths and Legands and Superman 1940s Sty plus Phil Tufnell and Barry Morgan from the Basingstoke Lions.

All live from 1.30 on Sunday.
