The KickAround is simply about talking soccer and all that implies.
Andy & Peter bring the Dallas area perspective of the game, but in a way familiar to The Ticket. The show gives sanctuary to the segment of the true Ticket P1 who also love soccer. Now, after 20 years, a place for them is found on Saturdays, 2-4.

Peter Welpton is a life long soccer fan with a 25 year radio career and somehow lucked into mixing the two into this weekly production. He has a real job, but spends his free time playing, writing and talking about soccer. (Dirty secret: the only reason he’s really doing this is to get an invite to Sturm’s annual English soccer trip)
Andy Swift is a soccer lifer who began his professional career as a TV reporter covering “futbol” before tackling management positions with the Dallas Burn (now FC Dallas), Major League Soccer, Dallas Cup, and FIFA. When taking time off from his soccer gigs, he spends too much time over-managing his Diamond Mind Baseball computer Geek-Ball league team.

This is the one where Andy & Peter are back at The Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum – broadcasting live during the Champions League Final! Real Madrid and Liverpool. You get to hear them try and do a show while watching the match, their reactions and talk about other important soccer topics. lol. apologies for the poor audio quality, especially as they screech and squeal during the game, causing the audio to clip. a. lot.
This is the one where Andy & Peter get an extra hour of show time and fill it with all kinds of stuff. Highlighting it is their interview with Roger Bennett of “Men in Blazers” who’s pimping a book. Plus more FCDallas thoughts, Champions League Final stuff and revving that World Cup engine.
