The bad news of course is that the West Coast are 8 hours behind the UK, so you will need to have the matchsticks available to keep awake, unless of course you want to close them and just listen running the risk of falling asleep!

The match will be on air from 3am UK time,ouch! Still we are Burnley, we can do it!

I'll certainly be lying down for this one, and very probably asleep. But Turfman, can't you capture the signal and make it available for later listening on Vital... what's that new thing, AudioBoo or some such, that now allows a sort-of sound-only YouTube. What do you mean you can't get this sorted in 5 days and the broadcast is probably copyright? :)

They do say they will be archiving the broadcast as mp3. so I guess all we need is a player that plays mp3!!
16/07/2009 18:33:00
I just thought what a good do its on mp3 i can listen to it when i get up :-) then thought what are the chances of getting that mp3 without seeing the score pretty much nil chance :-( tmp? you do know most players play mp3 or have i lost the plot lol
16/07/2009 18:43:00
Don't understand all this techy stuff, thought they might but wasnt sure. What the hell is mp4 then?
