In a move that is designed to flick two fingers up in the faces of Buggles, the 70s band who famously sang about video killing the radio star –

And as part of a plan that was concocted during a Friday lunchtime chat over coffee with Marc Webber, Head of Sport at audioBoom, the leading spoken word audio on demand mobile platform – is proud to announce that over the coming weeks it will launch its very own lo-fi radio station on the Interweb. 📻

The channel, which is to be known on the audioBoom platform as, is aimed at discerning mobile phone owning football folk who want to create/listen/share bite-sized football related gonzo journalism from their Internet enabled devices. 📱

Think of us as an indie broadcaster dedicated to the sub-culture that is community football. Because we know the game was invented before 1992 and we believe that a lot what it means to be apart of modern day football is rubbish.

It’ s essentially made for mobile-owning football folk who spend much of their time on the hoof.📱

Our maiden programme is to be named “football shorts” so-called for its short-form audio reportage or – as we prefer to call it - socially engaged journalism – rooted in participation.

We’re interested in longer form podcasts from people and/or groups with something compelling to say, too. What’s not to like about a gathering of passionate fans discussing their last league win/defeat? However, with the empathetic eye of the journalist-our ethnographers (read-members) can locate and tell stories that matter, stepping over the touchline from observation to participation.

So whether you’re giving a post match interview or recording the next big transfer scoop – make sure it’s – aka boots on the ground in the heart of your community.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
