In this episode Memphis radio legend Devin Steel mixes music & soccer.

Devin spent the last 25 years building a reputation as an afternoon radio drive-time king on a Memphis powerhouse station.  His studio became a must-visit for any visiting celebrities, athletes, and top hip hop and R&B artists.

Steel is a lifelong soccer fan. Even when college football came calling, he never lost his love for the Beautiful Game.  Not only a fan, Devin also plays and manages in an adult amateur soccer league. Maybe his on-field soccer stats haven’t blown up like some of the artists he’s promoted, but he is no less engaged- even designing his club’s kits! When he’s on the pitch, he’s on a bike.  The guys ask him about his new hobby, cycling.

In soccer news…

A pair of England national team players have been sent home for breaking quarantine protocol.  The guys will tell you whose bubble burst.

The Lionel Messi saga was short but intense.  Tim & Brodee an update on his 2020-21 plans and a guess at what’s next.

A critical four-day span for USL Championship side Memphis 901 FC.  They’ll take on North Carolina FC twice with both clubs needing wins, not draws, to push for the playoffs.

Wins would be a great present as we say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to 901 FC Head Coach Tim Mulqueen!

Before we go, it is with deep sadness we tell you that friend of the podcast & Memphis Rogues goalkeeper John Houska has passed away this week.  He was an aggressive goalkeeper during his amazing career at Loyola University Maryland & was in goal on that historic night vs New York Cosmos, shutting them out 1-0 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. Houska was also the face of the team, always taking time to make personal appearances at youth clinics and other events around Memphis. John was still full of that same energy and hope when we recently spoke with him. His personality really shines through in our podcast chat, which you can listen to here.

John Houska was 64.  He will be missed by his surviving family, friends, and the generation of kids he impacted in Memphis.

A big thanks to our guest as Devin Steel mixes music & soccer.
