And so it was that Phoenix gracefully left the 2016 Playoffs at the quarter-finals stage, after holding Bison to an uncomfortable little lead at WMMP and having half of their team put out of action.
And you know what? The boys done us proud. Hear about it right here. We recorded in a variety of different conditions so apologies for some of the sound quality.
For a Club that started the season playing in a different nation, suffered a series of huge financial setbacks and cruel blows, called on its fanbase to keep it afloat and had injury troubles that took it as low as the minimum number of dressed skaters allowed so as not to forfeit a game..... we did pretty well.
This show covers both "home" and away legs of the Quarter-Finals clash with Bison. It includes many a guest, not least of which, Tony Hand MBE and Fiona Heron (proud mum extraordinaire).
It features the final meeting of the NWRC and an impromptu game in inspired by Keith Floyd (as we needed filler when the Zamboni broke down).
It features the show's final interview with Mags Pullen (until we see her at Swindon or our new place or wherever else she will pop up)!
It's a moderate trek to Coventry so why not stick this on whilst you travel? We bleeped the swear words from Ben, Mags and Tony too!
This year's live shows from Coventry will not be "Phoenix" shows per se. That is simply because we now have so much representation from other clubs that it seemed to us to be a little unfair to call it a Phoenix show. Please note that it is not affiliated to ANY club and is NOT an official product from Phoenix, though we are happy for them and any other club to syndicate it through their media (with credit).
Also, be aware that we try to stop NM swearing but he simply can't help himself!
You can listen on your phone, on the way down. It's easy. Get Spreaker app. Search Spreaker for Phoenix Podcast (as we are using that so that you can find us) or click the link on Facebook or Twitter shortly before the live times.
Saturday's show starts at 1030am.
Sunday starts at 12 noon.
We can neither confirm nor deny that there might be a Late Edition of a some sort. If there is, it is NOT suitable for those with sensitive ears and is most definitely NOT official media of any club.
