  1. Beat me to it this time ha! Ep8 out in a few weeks after you’ve all digested this one and stopped laughing at the image of Gus Hollas going tonto!
  2. Drops tonight at 6... *This podcast was recorded before the club furloughed players and the majority of staff.
  3. Aye! I didn’t realise this until post edit and it was too late at that point! I’m away to sit and think about what I’ve done...
  4. Recorded and in the bag. I’m editing it as we speak, out this Friday! I promise we are doing our best to keep some original content coming, that along with the have a go at being a Killie commentator which is live on Twitter just now. Stay safe everyone, Gav
  5. Joins me on RockSport today at 4:10 to chat about content and communication strategy and about Scottish Football as a whole. Killie content again today on the radio ;-) rocksport.tv or TuneIn radio app if you have it and we’re on Virgin Media too. If you’re on the website, we have quite a lot of Killie content ranging from the Ladies team and their manager to Chris Kyle the first team analyst going in depth behind the scenes and Cathy Jamieson & Jim Thomson talking about the Killie Trust. Also last night’s (Monday) Talking Football had a lot of Killie chat on it. I’m also now co-hosting the show until further notice. Doing my bit to spread the word about Ayrshire’s Finest! We Are Killie Cheers, Gav
  6. A bit harsh lol it’s how I normally speak. Anyway... I’ll get pulled in by Scott for this ( as well as my old man) but I’d like to say my piece on this... I’ve been asked for my thoughts on the criticism and if I’m being honest, yes, I think it’s a bit harsh but the industry is full of opinions and we can’t please everyone. I’m fine with that. I and we take on board all criticism towards us, me and the podcast as well as what we do on a match day on the tannoy as well as Killie TV. Sometimes it’s hard not to take some of it personally, especially when we all put in the effort which, usually means working a lot later then we should. These are the things fans don’t see, Scott and Neil work incredibly hard and are often at their desks late in to the evening. Hats off to them. Now to this episode... On the subjects of the sound effects, yes I understand what’s being said, however I think we used about 3 if you’re lucky. I get though, that it’s not everyone’s taste. They were put in to enhance and help with the Alan “Power Rankings” fun feature. I make no apologies for adding in what I think might add value to the podcast and make if it a bit more fun and relaxed when compared to other official club podcasts / content. We want to make it fun for all and show the lighter and human side of the players as well as having them speak out on things inside the club. All the podcasts are edited by me which takes around 4 hours to complete, which has to be done in the one hit, by the time I listen to the raw audio again and then edit out the “guff” as I call it. That’s the dead air, bits where we talk about the running order and the naughty words! I’m sure I could do half an hour of just bad words!! We want it to be fun, informative and light hearted. Something you can listen to on the move, in the car, in bed or making the dinner and not something totally serious. That’s why we have Spotify Roulette and The Podcast Pub Quiz. It shows the side to these players that you don’t see on the pitch. They are all human like the rest of us. Please be rest assured we edit out very, very little. The players share their stories, we just steer them in to it. I promise it’s not heavily edited, like it has been suggested. I’m a die-hard Killie fan like the rest of us and want people to hear these stories. We certainly don’t cut anyone off. I hope you don’t mind me commenting with my take on what you folks have been saying but please, before you say something like its “s**te” or “cheesy” remember that this is aimed at a very large demographic and won’t always suit all tastes all of the time. The feedback as a whole has been amazing for the podcast and please continue to fire it on here or below the posts on social media. Good or bad. We are doing a lot more than a lot of other clubs who have a lot more staff than we do. Onwards and upwards because together...WE ARE KILLIE!!! Cheers, Gav
  7. I’m not sure on the whether the others will have display boxes so it’s not right to comment on that. I’ll ask the question to Gregg. Details on the others will be released at various stages throughout the calendar year. That’s all I can say at the moment :-)
  8. Hammy is knackered, I’ll not be in for the rest of the season. Al D sending me out on loan ha! Some technical difficulties just towards the end of half time which took a bit of time to resolve. Think I’ll try that at each home game now haha!
  9. The 64/65 top goes on sale Friday 7th Feb. This is the first in a line of retro commemorative strips to be released throughout 2020. Only 150 will be on sale of each strip when they are released and this one comes in a display box as well. It will cost £50. I hope that helps :-) Gav

  12. Evening all. just a quick note to say Episode 3 of our official club podcast - We Are Killie is now available to stream or download from the likes of Spotify, Apple, Deezer and all good podcast outlets. This time, we have Kitman Kev as our guest with some fantastic stories about his time in the youth set up and some behind the scenes chat from the LC era, SSC time at the club and now. The usual Podcast Pub Quiz is back as well as Spotify Roulette. You can also stream it direct from the club website from the link below... https://kilmarnockfc.co.uk/news/we-are-killie-kitman-kevin-mcneill/ Please, if you could, fire your comments and reaction to it below, we’d love to hear your opinions. KTID, Gav
  13. Fire the email in to me and ill happily get it on the list. I’ve a few to get through this week so to anyone who has emailed in, I promise, I have seen it!
  14. We and myself are pretty transparent over this so for anyone who is interested, here is what I produce for each match. This is from the weekend. The fully finished one isn’t on my phone. I hope this helps.
  15. David, Please allow me to explain our walk out theme and why we do it the way we do. 1. We use a song called Imperium by Madeon. I have split it up in to “tension” part for when the teams are in the tunnel as I need something to bridge the small gap between the safety tone which has to go out 5mins before KO. The ref will bring the teams out around 14:57:30 a process that takes 2 mins. This also helps for live TV matches where gaps can be unpredictable and we are at the peril of the broadcaster so, rather than stop a song half way though, we have a run out sequence using this song which we think is punch and tense. 2. We use the same part of the song which I’ve looped, to welcome out that days opponents and officials. 3. I welcome Killie out and Chris in the control room then fires off the second bit of the sequence on a pre-arranged audio que (“mighty Ayrshire Killie”) and the the punchier and more tense part of the song plays. It lasts for 28 seconds then it changes to Let’s Go by Calvin Harris which then plays for 62 seconds to allow for the mandatory Fair Play Handshake to take place, stops and allows us to do our WE ARE KILLIE war cry. The lyrics in the Calvin Harris song are the reason we use it. 4. We produce a full script and running order which is timed down to 15:00:00 and Kick off. I’m more than happy to share this on here too. 5. We also have SPFL permission to not read out the acceptable conduct message, instead direct spectators to page 3 of the match programme, to allow us more time to focus on the music and pre-match content. We are always up for new ideas, song requests and general ideas, some will work and some wont. What I will say is that we feel we play a very good variation of music. We’ve played music by Cream, The Doobie Brothers, Dua Lipa and Clubhouse recently. Not everyone will like all the music but we try to play songs from all decades as we have to consider the age groups in the stadium. We think HT is for reflection and chat. We don’t want to intrude on people talk about the 45mins they have just seen, so we try to reflect the music and it’s volume that it’s played at. I hope this helps everyone. We just want everyone to enjoy the match day experience. KTID WE ARE KILLIE Cheers, Gav
