Daz and Steve had the honor of chatting with prolific LFC author, Head of LFCTV (including documentary & animation/short video), Mark Platt! This is Mark’s 1st podcast appearance.
Mark was born in Liverpool and has always been interested in the history of the club. He first became involved in Liverpool FC writing a Knowsley United program in the early 90s (the local non-league side). After finishing his journalism studies, he interviewed LFC boss Souness at Melwood, which was published in 90 mins magazine. Mark went on to become one of the five co-founders of XTRA Time magazine – fortnightly publication about LFC (1993-1995), wrote his first book, ‘Cup Kings 1965 & 1977’, and contributed articles to the official LFC magazine.
Mark began full-time employment with LFC in March 2001 (20th anniversary coming up) as a journalist on their website. When LFCTV launched in 2007, he moved there. Since he has written many more books (titles below-purchase links on atxreds.com). He is now the Head of LFCTV, but he is also involved in the documentary & animation/short video. He still attends games as a fan and is a season ticket holder in the Anfield Road upper with his eldest son.
