BBC B18 Broadcasts in English
« on: October 28, 2018, 0938 UTC »
Seasons (B18) Greetings!

The BBC hasn't put all their transmissions in English on one table yet for B18.  Above are links to regions in Africa (frequently received in the US) they target in Africa.  There are also broadcasts targeted to Asia, I did not include them.

Of note there is a 1500z broadcast on 15420 am so Sportsworld can be heard on Saturdays and Sundays once we return to Standard time (1000 am eastern standard).

You are welcome! I did hear that the new Spurs stadium scheduled to first open at the beginning of the season, then tomorrow vs. City, will not be open before next season.

Getting a bit of deja vu there. I lived in Seattle in the late 90s and early 00's, and the new stadium for the Mariners, which broke ground in 1997 and was supposed to be ready for Opening Day 1999, ended up being delayed until right after that year's All Star game. Sounds like the Spurs on on a similar track now. (The issue in Seattle was the retractable roof - not sure how much it was based on the design used in Toronto or if they basically came up with an entirely new one, but it took a while to get it working right.)

https://cartilagefreecaptain.sbnation.com/tottenham-hotspur-news/2018/10/26/18029072/tottenham-hotspur-new-stadium-debut-delay-2019. The original delays in August had mentioned consideration for the safety of supporters.

What a pity about the helicopter crash, probably involving the Thai national owner, just on the perimeter of Leicester City's King Power Stadium.  Sounds like he became a beloved member of the community.

I knew there was a reason I loved Pep, Pep loves the radio & "Your Song" (Read first paragraph and "Your Song" further down - it was my wedding song.)  https://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news/pep-guardiola-manchester-city-interview-15327302
