Radio Leeds' week of Wembley specials!

13 May 2013

To mark City's appearance in the npower League 2 Play-Off Final this weekend, BBC Radio Leeds - the host station for the club's Bantams Player match commentary - will be broadcasting a week of special programmes.

In the build-up to the club's second visit to Wembley this season, Radio Leeds' West Yorkshire Sport Daily Show will be running a host of Bradford City-related programmes for City fans to enjoy. The West Yorkshire Sport Daily Show is on from 6:00pm until 7:00pm every week night.

The first programme will be aired this Tuesday evening, with Radio Leeds Sports Editor Gareth Jones joining Bantams boss Phil Parkinson for an in-depth review of the season so far. Parkinson will be going back over the key moments of the campaign as well as revealing some of the stories from the dressing room.

Wednesday night will see a selection of City supporters in the studio to pick their own favourite moments and main players of the season, while also analysing the big match with Northampton Town.

Thursday's night special will allow Radio Leeds to take supporters back to the last time City won promotion via the Play-Offs. Former players Lee Duxbury and Mark Stallard will be on hand to look back at the success of 1996.

Friday's show will act as the main preview programme for Radio Leeds ahead of Saturday's eagerly-anticipated match. Coming live from London, the show will feature interviews with Parkinson, his players and the fans.

Come match-day itself, the build-up to the final starts from 9:00am live on Olympic Way as Radio Leeds' Jake Katborg is joined by the Bantams Banter boys Tom & Dom to bring a flavour of the atmosphere back to West Yorkshire.

Then from 12:00pm live from inside Wembley, former Bantams player John Hendrie joins Dave Fletcher and Gareth Jones for full match commentary of the final.


As well as special West Yorkshire Sport Daily programming all week, there will also be Bradford guests every morning with Liz Green Live at Breakfast from 6.30am, including Mark Lawn on Tuesday.

Supporters can find BBC Radio Leeds via either 92.4FM, 103.9FM, 774AM & DAB
