Reading FC PA Announcer Daren Bavister - AKA DJ MegaParty Interview

The man behind the mic sits down to talk with The Tilehurst End Podcast.

While the main TTE Podcast continues to enjoy its summer holiday, Wimb returns to bring you a special interview with the man behind the microphone on matchdays, Reading's PA announcer Daren Bavister aka 'DJ MegaParty'. Recorded back in January, Daren talks us through how he got into announcing, how he ended up at Reading plus how he responded to some strong criticism after his first few weeks on the job.

Following that interview, there's a quick roundup of some of the key stories around the club over the past few weeks, including Wimb's thoughts on new deals for Jaap Stam and Chris Gunter, Danny Williams departure plus a possible exit for Ali Al-Habsi.

He also talks through his experiences running his own junior team Hatch Warren Phoenix - more details of which you can find here.

We'll be back in a few weeks time with a full season preview but in the mean time thanks for listening and a big thanks to those who continue to support the show at
