Icelandic Crime Writer on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 17th Nov 2017 19:19
Life’s a Pitch is live on BBC Radio Suffolk at lunchtime on Saturday and sees host Mark Murphy, legend-in-residence Kevin Beattie, New Tractorboy and TWTD’s Phil Ham, who will be at the KCOM Stadium ahead of the game against Hull City, joined by Icelandic crime writer and Town supporter of 44 years standing Óskar Guðmundsson, who will be about to see the Blues in action live for the very first time (12-2pm).
Guðmundsson, whose 2015 debut novel Hilma was highly-acclaimed and won awards in Iceland, is in the UK for Hull Noir, a week-long crime-writing festival exploring the best of British and international crime fiction, which coincides neatly with the Blues’ game at the KCOM Stadium.
Can Town build on the 3-0 win at home to Preston at Hull and make Óskar’s afternoon? Can the Blues maintain their play-off push? Give us your thoughts on those questions or anything else via email, Mark’s Twitter or during the show by phone on 01473 212121 or text to 81333 starting your message with SFK.
The show can be heard on 95.5FM, 95.9FM, 103.9FM and 104.6FM, and also now on DAB, or online via a widget on this page by clicking here.

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet
“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
