The Grandstanders Podcast - 15th October 2011

'Melissa GormanLike it or not, we are here.  Like it or not here we are.....to share, enlighten, edify and educate!'   That's how Craig introduces the show at least...and it's true!  The Grandstanders are back again this week - rain, hail or shine (or in the case of our office in Mitcham, internet or no internet!)   


Kicking us off, Jane's over-whelming experience of junior sports coaching.  Are the pressures of competition too much for our youngsters?  Jane explores (experientially) the best way for coaches and parents to deal with trying games......

That's right folks, the Grandstanders are back again this week to keep you glued to your radios! They kick off the show with a secret that might put the security on guard. Join Craig Harper and Jane O'Brien for this week's edition of the Grandstanders.


The Grandstanders Podcast - 1st October 2011

It's Grandstanders installment number 14 million and 62 (if you believe Craig), on the biggest weekend in the sporting calendar. So of course, we talk the grand final (although this show went to air before Geelong's spectacular win!). Not only is it big here in Melbourne, but also around the country and even other parts of the world.


Gary AyresThere was also another grand final last week - and Gary Ayres, coach of 2011 VFL premiers Port Melbourne, is our special guest this week. He's a former player too - with 5 premiership games and 2 Norm Smith medals under his belt - and joins us to share his thoughts and philosophies on coaching, learning, development and life in general. Plus whether he'd consider an AFL coaching role if a club came knocking...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 27th August 2011

deblovely.jpg (34315 bytes)Lots of sport. Lots of health. Lots of motivational stuff. That's how Craig introduces the show at least!


But it turns out he was right. Not just AFL but NRL this weekend - because the Storm's winning streak has been broken! Also post workout soreness: how do you relieve those screaming muscles?


And today's guest: Olympic weightlifter Deborah Acason.


Is Jane's top pink or purple?


It's driven a wedge in between the Grandstanders this morning. Jane says it's pink, Craig says it's purple. From the LightFM office, Stacey (pictured on the right) says it's purple, Tim says it's pink.


So the Grandstanders need your help! Text 0428 899 899 or call 1300 777 899 before the show ends at 10am this morning! Pink or purple??
