Sh-Boom by The Crew Cuts
"Alan Martin handballs over to Donald – they had a beautiful combination around the half back line picked up by Johnny Kerr best on ground in 54 Grand Final -effort by that player towards Gilmore. A stab pass by Gilmore a beautiful pass hits Jack Collins right on the chest."

Ted Whitten narrating this in 1991

Three Coins in the Fountain
"There goes Doug Reynolds once more this is a nice piece of football you will see him take a handball back here & eventually the ball bounces back into his arms & he puts it through on his left boot, we could do anything in the last quarter"

Teddy Whitten
