Episode 2216: Audio Beds Of The Year, Rachael Blackmore Raises The Bar Still Higher, McDevitt On Darts
It’s Christmas week on Second Captains, and that can mean only one thing – it’s almost time for us to announce our audio bed of the year live from the SC Log Cabin. What does all of this mean? We’ve been doing it for years and Richie Sadlier still doesn’t have a clue, but we nevertheless give you the run-down today.
What’s your favourite audio breather from these three????????????? It’s time to pick your best SC audio bed of the year!
Despite his recent back surgery, @RichieSadlier will be dragged to the SC Christmas Eve log cabin to deliver your final countdown on Friday?
