It was 50 years ago the other day. I was there as Radio Humberside's first sports editor in 1971

Back on 25 February 1971, the day BBC Radio Humberside opened in Hull's Chapel Street (pictured), I was there as its first ever sports editor. 

In this interview with Humberside's David 'Burnsy' Burns, I talk about the promotion battle Hull City were caught up in when we went on air, a goal for Grimsby Town by Matt Tees, actor Tom Courtenay, broadcaster Paul Heiney, and decimalisation.
