radio bangorFor Bangor City fans far from home, internet-based Radio Bangor is the next-best thing to being at the game.

Broadcasting live commentary on most City matches since 2010 and attracting up to 230 listeners per show, the unofficial supporters-run initiative has avid listerners in all four corners of the globe. and in addition to deliveing its own unique brand of commentary regularly interviews personalities and people in the news. Guests over the last few seasons have included Wales manager Chris Coleman, Welsh Premier League Secretary Gwyn Derfel, and Bangor City legends Nev Powell, Gwyn Pierce Owen and Kevin Langley.

Set up by supporter Dave Hayes, regular commentators are Garry Sweeney, Jonathan Ervine and Ian Gill whilst guests behind the mic have included former Wales international John Harston and Daily Post grassroots football expert Dave Jones.

Yesterday's broadcast (in a storm) on the City v Afan Lido clash had a Guinness World Records feel about it, as commentator Jonathan Ervine set himself a challenge to tell 100 Christmas-cracker jokes mixed in with his description of the on-pitch action.

In true Bangor City tradition, Jonathan and Radio Bangor proved up to the challenge - although whether it was worth it, we'll leave you to judge ...

Why did no one bid for Rudolph and Blitzen on eBay? Because they were two deer!
What do you drain your carrots with at Christmas? An advent colander
What do angry mice send each other in December? Cross-mouse cards!
Who hides in the bakery at Christmas? A mince spy!

... and if you can stand it, here's the list (Word doc, 29kb) of all 100 Christmas cracker jokes that Jonathan told - within the 90 minutes playing time - yesterday.
