  3. sunday quiz......what was the first ever pop video? and was it any good.

    if i was a gambling man i would have put a tenner on romania...pipes accordion and a babe up front.

  4. The Beatles claim it was the ones they did for Rain.

    Top of the Pops used to have films to accompany records. I remember the one for Tears of a Clown.

    You could make a case for the Six Five Special title sequence - Don Lang and His Frantic Five?

  5. Little Richard claims it was him with Tutti Frutti, don't want to argue with a man of the cloth on a Sunday but...

    2. Hoo did he get in there? There must be certain times when a window opens and you can sneak in for a wee whiley. A sort of Brigadoon Blog.
      But that wis a wee sad cry he left there. Anybody know how to get the link to here to him? (If indeed he is a he!)

    3. try leaving it on GIO facebook? Just tried the old blog again, barred.

    4. Naw. I wouldnt do that. 1. No reason to think the Fish goes there and 2. Think what might drift over instead?
      Small-ad in "Total Coarse", maybe?

  8. What's on my aye choons?

  9. Just think what that would have cost if you'd paid for them.

  10. its a lot clearer than brigadoon.....its intrigue and double intrigue....

    question............how can you get on a blog if it's shut (briga)doon

    answer.....always look for the simple things......T_F must have access......so

    T_F must be BB or B's

    there is only a slight flaw in this tho'....how come T_F never got anything played on his own programme except for a cliff?

    answer.....BB and B love cliff.....therefor T_F is definitely BB and B.

    this discussion is now closed and the jury is oot.

  11. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key.

  12. Against a background of staff and budget cuts it seems obvious to me that a number of fictitious malcontented bloggers were manufactured to give an excuse to close down the blog and save money. Commercial social networking sites do the same job for nothing.

  13. I went in under my yahoo account and posted, but didn't manage from google. So, I guess my business email address is barred but my personal email address is not - though it doubtless will be now.

    But, Yahoo, as they say.

    regardez - youse

  14. So the GIO team have gone to the effort of having "regular" bloggers blocked? My my! Someone really did piss them off then.

    1. And we thought they were ignoring us!

      If they want sycophancy there is always the Dark Side.

      I'd rather be outside the tent pissin' in.

    2. I was always an outsider! Ms Baps can't bring herself to recognise the neighbours! >8-)

  15. Here Gaie, I see Joe Bonamassa is playing doon the road on Thursday night.
    He's one of yours is he not?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes, and well worth seeing. As everyone's fed up hearing, he didn't blow me away, that was probably my fault and Al will tell you all his pals have never stopped telling him what a great gig it was he missed.

    Nice to get back to listening to Paul Jones on a Monday evening Warren Haynes was good tonight.

    1. Cheapest tickets 60 quid. How does that compare with the ones you guys bought?

      Delete
    2. £35 Edinburgh - but then there's £15 to park your car! I only bought Edinburgh as they didn't release a Glasgow date till much later. They were £50. (£1.00 to park your car!!)

      Al! there's your holiday planned, a trip to Rio and you get to see Joe.

      I have to visit the Kingdom on Friday. Assuming I sober up in time, I'll be back in Glasgow Saturdayish.

      The knowledge that Paolo owes me a large whiskey will doubtlessly spur me on...

    2. I mean 'yes, coming out to play'; not 'yes' commenting on Mr Git's mixed racial background or his spelling

    2. How Much I Lied - Elvis Costello

      It's like a different song. Mind you Gram Parsons couldn't really sing.

      Elvis is well on his way to forming a triumvirate with Sting and Bono as the most pretentious men on the planet.
