Show Notes

In 1986, Joe Johnson went into the Snooker World Championship having previously not won a match in the event held at the famous Crucible Theatre. He was a 150-1 outsider at the outset and went all the way to the final where he met the legendary Steve Davis. Joe defeated Steve 18-12 to become world champion and with it forever having his name on that famous silver trophy. I was lucky enough to have a chat with Joe over the phone earlier today and we talked about memories of his brilliant triumph in 86 and we reviewed the world championship which has just finished in where Ronnie O'Sullivan claimed his 6th title. Hope you enjoy the interview!
