The Football Attic Kit Podcast 17 Part 1 - Wales

It's time for yet another special guest on The Football Attic Kit Podcast (you lucky people) - it's the one and only Simon 'Shakey' Shakeshaft!

As anyone will tell you (especially Shakey himself), Shakey knows all there is to know about the shirts and kits worn by the Wales national team down the years, so that's the subject we're taking for this podcast.

And good news for you (we hope) - it's another two-parter!

The first part is available to download here and contains an extended Kit News section and the opening part of our debate on the greatest Wales shirts since 1980. The second part of the podcast will be available to download on this website soon and will contain the remaining part of our Wales shirt discussion, plus the Kit Off vote which you can take part in below.

Oh, and before you download the podcast, an apology for the poor sound quality on Chris' audio track. We're not sure what caused him to sound so muffled and distant, but we've done all we can to make him sound as clear as possible, albeit under limiting circumstances. Sorry for any inconvenience where that's concerned...

KIT OFF - VOTE NOW!

For our latest Kit Off vote, our guest, Shakey, has chosen three white Wales 'change' shirts that are, in his own words, 'unsung heroes' from Welsh football kit history.

As ever, we'd just like you to vote for your favourite using the buttons below, and we'll announce the results of our poll on the next podcast. Thanks in advance for taking part!


CRIB SHEET - EPISODE 17

A crib sheet is available featuring pictures of all the kits mentioned in this podcast, plus links to the websites and projects mentioned. Send us an email if you'd like access to our shared Google Doc now, and we'll do the rest!

The Football Attic Kit Podcast 15 Part 2 - John Devlin

If you've listened to the first part of our interview with John Devlin, you'll no doubt be wondering how Volume 2 of True Colours came about, or how John came to be the TV superstar that he is.

Well wait no more! Part 2 of our monster podcast with the great football kit illustrator and author of our time is now ready to assault your ears!

Find out which radio broadcaster John rubbed shoulders with during the promotion for his first book and which football club was foolish enough to REFUSE John's request to appear in his second book...

The Football Attic Kit Podcast 15 Part 1 - John Devlin

This week we deviate slightly from the usual format, taking a break from the Kit Collection feature to indulge ourselves in some star gazing...

For Episode 15 of the Football Attic Kit Podcast, we're talking to TV's John Devlin about... well, about TV's John Devlin!

We take a wander down Devlin lane and get to find out all about his career, the stars he's fraternized with and eventually we get to the meat of it all when we get stuck into his brilliant True Colours books.

Listen as Chris repeatedly tries to ruin the chance of a TC3 ever coming to fruition, while Rich mocks the main man's love of Scotland!

There's no kit off vote just yet... that'll be in Part 2...

To hear Part 1 of Episode 15, you can subscribe to us on iTunes or you can download the podcast here. Thanks for listening!

KIT OFF - NOT YET!

Wait for Part 2 you impatient people! ;-P
