London Calling

08Aug17

In the latest episode of my show for America: What it’s really like traveling on one of Britain’s most overcrowded trains. Songs with your name in. The British Home Secretary wants to make people who post extreme views online harder to catch. Proof that Elvis is not still alive. English soccer clubs missing out because […]

Hate Crime

15May16

This week a man was arrested in Scotland because an online video shows his dog making a Nazi salute. He could now be charged for committing a hate crime. The Crown Prosecution Service website has a large section on hate crime and how they define it. I was particularly interested in the section on race […]


I had the honor and privilege of appearing on the PodcastOne international hit podcast “Up Close and Far Out” this week with the wonderful Michael Harrison from Talkers.com. The Talkers.com website described it as,”…an extensive chat with Graham Mack, the personable “breakfast show” host and program director of independent music and talk station BOB-FM located in the […]


Leicester City have changed the world. Now ANY club can win the Premiership. It’s the Roger Bannister effect. For years, experts said that the human body was simply not capable of running a mile in under four minutes, it was impossible. In the 1940’s, the mile record was pushed to four minutes and one second, where […]


I won’t be a Liverpool Football Club season ticket holder next season. I’ve been on the season ticket waiting list for ten years so far. I really thought I’d be in with a chance of getting to the top of the list next season because the club are increasing the capacity of Anfield by more […]

A schoolboy holds a leather ball In a photograph on a bedroom wall the bed is made, the curtains drawn as silence greets the break of dawn. The dusk gives way to morning light revealing shades of red and white which hang from posters locked in time of the Liverpool team of 89. Upon a […]


Today I got to speak to the bloke who says his dad started it all. Craic on! Listen to the latest Mack Nuggets at; http://www.mackmedia.co.uk/8th-mack-nuggets-audio-video If you want to respond to anything I’ve written, tweet me; @GrahamMack 


Everyone in Liverpool has a story. Today I went to Bootle to get my car’s air-conditioning re-charged. I met a bloke called Ian Parkinson from CoolCar. While Ian hooked up his gauges and vacuum pump, I got my phone out to check some emails. That’s when Ian noticed the Liver Bird on my home screen. […]


The thing I like the most about Liverpool is the people. Scousers tend to come across as either hard knocks or comedians but deep down they are the warmest, most generous and caring people you’ll ever meet. As I’ve been spending a lot of time in the city lately, I have come up with a […]


Correct Answer!

15Mar16

The literal truth is not always the best answer. As another big European night approaches for Liverpool Football Club, I’m reminded of the time my dad asked me why I support LFC. I was about ten and said, “Well, I was born in Liverpool, you support them, you’ve got a season ticket in the Kemlyn […]

The Grand Final of The International Contest of jokes. How to look good in every photo. Why virtual reality won’t catch on. Electronic miscommunication. The truth about […]


I thought I had no real connection to John Lennon until now… For most of the 80s and 90s I lived in Australia and New Zealand and used to impress the locals with the fact that I was born in the same hospital as John Lennon. I was the frontman in a 60s cover band […]


Ticket to Snide

21Feb16

The fans are still being ripped off. Liverpool Football Club’s U-turn over the planned ticket price rises and public apology is welcome but does it go far enough? Premier League clubs will share in a windfall of more than £8.3 billion from their new broadcast contracts. Liverpool will earn at least £100m from the new […]


This Craic appears in issue 220 of the Liverpool fanzine, Red All Over The Land. I have to admit that when John Pearman, the editor of Red All Over The Land asked me to review a new Beatles book for the fanzine, I was expecting something a bit lighter. I don’t mean the content, I […]


Liverpool’s win on penalties in the Capital One Cup last week reminds me of one radio station I worked at where most of the staff became Liverpool supporters. From January 2004 to June 2006, I was the Program Director at 2CR FM on the South Coast. The staff worked out that I was in a […]


“Doing the same thing over & over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity”. That quote, or variations of it, is widely attributed to Albert Einstein. I don’t know if he said it or not, all I know is that whoever is making managerial decisions at Liverpool Football Club doesn’t agree with […]
