Liverpool v Southampton: The Weekender
To take stock of the week just gone and look ahead to Liverpool v Southampton, John Gibbons hosts Andy Heaton, Sian Bennett and Craig Hannan.
Also on the show, we go back to what was a busy weekend for the city with three pilot events taking place in the form of ‘The First Dance’ presented by Circus at Bramley Moore Dock on the Friday and Saturday, as well as a concert in Sefton Park on the Sunday, as Liverpool gears up for life after lockdown.
