    2. Far from sooking up, I was giving the team a hard time over the unbalanced whistling theme, when up popped mary -doll to get ripped into me.I think she missed my point, somehow, anyway, we've since kissed and made up.

      After that, I thought,'that'll be me in the dog house' but they played Robbie Robertson just the same.

      I've got Billy Swan down for tonight. We'll see.

  2. They are all your disciples, Norrie, and have learned the art of the pucker well.

    Talking about the other side I see you've gone with Fire and not Human Touch - a far better pause in my opinion.
    However, I've emailed in, which if played, will be the best song on tonight. Easy peasey.

  3. B*GGER!!!

    I send in the best song for tonight's show last night only for b*gger lugs to post an article which says:

    "But her all time favourite rock and roll pause? "The song Bernadette by The Four Tops," she said. "I feel like it's one of the original pauses. The name 'Bernadette' just comes roaring back after the pause, and it's so dramatic. In a way I feel like it created a template for the way pauses are used in rock songs".

    Its no fair.

    1. What about Tiger Feet by Mud? It's a song about pause.

  4. Why is buying a record with pauses like Blackmail?

    It's paying for silence.

    3. I was up in Inverness this summer for the Candy Staton gig in the Ironworks. Wandering around the shops in the afternoon, I took a notion to buy a Harris Tweed jacket but distracted by the overly loud Runrig performing 'Loch Lomond' live,I chucked it and left the shop.

      Two weeks later in Aviemore for the deliquent's birthday, I wander into the Edinburgh Woolen Mill and decide to buy a Harris Tweed jacket. 'Loch Lomond' by Runrig is blaring in the background. Fed up with the sentiment overpowering the product I say, "I'm sorry, but if you can't switch that noise off, I'm not buying this jacket". The assistant switches the music off. This was a tactical mistake in a sense, because Smiffy proceded to come in and pick lots of cashmere and the whole episode cost a small fortune, but what was really interesting was that when the music went off, about 14 people came into the shop and by the time I'd left, there were queues at the till. I've been meaning to write to EWM to point out that 8 out of 10 tourists are not charmed by histrionic rock n roll versions of Burns.

    4. I don't know how any of them compete with Wotherspoon's. I've been in BB for the Cullen skink. The man in the eye patch likes to engage his customers. That's probably how he got the eye patch.

  16. So...one of our original number has managed to get himself a regular slot blethering on the radio about music. Harry fae Gatehoose (with one of his Razorbills chums) has been given a monthly slot on Folk n Stuff on Alive Radio. Heard of it? Me neither, but anyway...eat your heart out HH Jx

    p.s. yep Danny macAskill's great. Saw him at the Red Bull Uphill Chasers and The Daughter was mightily impressed a few years back when he did a wee display for the Boroughmuir High School pupils.

    1. Harry can't be all bad if he likes The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.

      Danny had a Q&A before his exhibition. The first child asked if he could have his gloves when he was finished and a second enquired as to his favourite biscuit.
