The man who did the Radio Scotland commentary on the Coca Cola Cup Final has sadly passed away.
I would argue that the radio commentary was even more dramatic than the TV.
One of the iconic radio voices when I was growing up, along with Bob Crampsey, David Francey and David Begg.

RIP.

I'd heard about this yesterday on Radio Scotland when 'Chico' Young was summarising the weekend football from Cappielow.
Great names indeed SG.
I was privileged to once meet David Francey and share a late(ish) breakfast with him and his good lady.
What a man! Some absolutely great stories but just a pure gentleman. No airs or graces. Mrs Francey was exactly the same. Just a lovely couple.
They were spending a long weekend in the hotel over the road from the house and I was 'summoned' to put in an appearance, not knowing who it was I'd been summoned to see/meet.
Absolutely delighted it turned out to be "Up go the heads!" Mr Francey😊
