The Kickabout With Johnny Vaughan

Join Johnny Vaughan and Gavin "The Woodman" Woods for an alternative build-up to the weekend's sport, plus a look at off-the-ball news, quirky stories and, more often than not, bizarre impressions of Rugby League fans. The boys celebrate sporting superstars, interview athletes and most importantly shine a spotlight on grass roots warriors plying their trade on hungover sundays. Tune in to Radio X at 11am on Saturdays to hear the show - Radio X is available across the UK on digital radio, 104.9 FM in London, 97.7 FM in Manchester, on your mobile or via www.radiox.co.uk
