Poundland

What would you download with the £1 my tory chums have ensured that you are better of with.

Of course you could take that £1 to paolo and place it on the likely SPL Champions this season and with the return have £1.02 to squander.....

Or buy 25 penny chews....

  1. I would download from Aye Right Choons:

    Erland & The Carnival - 'Trouble In Mind'

    No reason other than it's a jolly sounding song ☺

  3. .. and ripping, it's more than simply recording the audio.
    The key aspect of ripping is disambiguation. When ripping songs from any source, the songs should be split into separate tracks or files, and the songs should be tagged.
    Otherwise, you are simply recording or dubbing the audio. Errr GIO, £1, no chance!

      I gave them yet another chance to play The King Has Lost His Crown but they squandered the opportunity in favour of yon song we're sick to death of hearing.

    3. They missed a lot of good shouts tonight. Familiarity over something less heard and maybe better? All very subjective. But it's becoming a very unadventurous program. So - a late converter to the general opinion here. (Daren't try to spell consensus - always get it wrong and someone always picks me up on it)

  13. oh the RAH, happy memories.....hey, wait a minute - they have Radio Scotland in London? - Radio Scotland a 'national disgrace' -see today's Herald. Better news though, it also reported that 'Scientist backs discovery of Higgs boson in capital', which should be a boost for tourism. Wonder where they'll display it?

    and *sigh* just because they didn't play Queen for Henri doesn't mean he didn't ask for it - this may be the programme where etc but they don't always play what people ask for. Imagine.

    3. well, I specifically asked them not to play the worst recrod ever made - they didn't, which is a kind of success.

      By the way, I figured out that if we all go onto ***book and leave long blog type posts, they pay more attention - also, we might get the new regulars to join in - that would be interesting..

  16. Here's a question that's gone unanswered .. why do most big women have a distinctive laugh and are often referred to as having a bubbly personality?







    Is the Bass Rock big enough?

    1. not on your life! what about the gannets there, puffins, kittiwakes, et al? what about me at Kelburn enjoying a happy hour on a horse when suddenly unseated as the horse takes fright at an eldritch screech from over the water?

      I suppose there'e possibilities for mining curling stones without need for explosives, but hey, I'm not a curler and there must be places further away. What about Gruinard?

      Gabrielle (she of the eye patch) does a terrific version, too.

    2. I saw the "ok" pod from my living room first thing about half a mile from my house. It wasn't until later that we knew of the strandings. I went along for a look and it was like a fairground, hundreds of people, traffic cops etc. I got a wee look over the cliff and saw the carnage. Sad indeed.

      Apparently the ok group are still off Cellardyke but I haven't seen any sign of them since midday.

      My nephew is one of the lifeboat crew who has been involved almost all day.

    1. tweet tweet.

      I've only sent a handful - up until now I've only had that dismissive 'so and so asked for' and no intention of playing it - I hate that, play the song or don't, but don't throw me crumbs. Though to be fair, of the handful, most have been of the Gong variety just to be annoying - I know, I can't imagine who I think I'm annoying either.
