It's no secret that Channel 9's Howzat: Kerry Packers War was a massive ratings success... and, thankfully for us, a whole bunch of anecdotes are emerging from the woodwork.
Already, here at Mix 94.5 we've heard from Gary Cosier, Greg Chappell and Lachy Hulme (the man who played Kerry Packer so well). And now, one of the men central to the whole revolution was the man Kerry Packer turned to in order to get the players onside, Mr Ian Chappell.
More importantly... The Big Couch spoke with Tony Greig as well... who, according to Howzat, was Ian Chappell's main sparring partner in the WSC domain.
"Chappelli" joined the Dead Set Legends to talk about World Series Cricket, and he shared a whole bunch of stuff you may now have known about the time.
