After Ken’s praise for the “lush soundscape” of the Chris de Burgh classic Lady In Red, a listener today emails us with the origin story of the song, which involves show favourite Pat Kenny.
We also preview Jason Quigley’s upcoming middleweight world title fight against Demetrius Andrade with Chris Mannix of DAZN and Sports Illustrated on today’s show. Quigley’s amateur pedigree probably promised more than his pro career has delivered so far, and we see what chance he has against the 30-0 Andrade, a boxer no one at the top of the division wants anything to do with.

It’s been a year full of rancour, ill-will and foul language between @kenearlys, @EoinMcDevitt and I but an outburst by one of my co-hosts (no, not *him* – the other one) at the end of today’s football pod, out now, will shock even hardened SC listeners ?
