    If the smashin' wee song I have requested gets played, it will be a feather in my cap!

    The smashin' wee song's lyrics mention hens, ducks, buzzards, guinea-fowl, geese, turkeys, vultures, pigeons, + 1 swan, 1 budgie, 1 parrot, and, of course, a fine, upstanding

    Hens? Chickens? Pigeons? Which will come first tonight?
    Anyone know the pecking order?

    Lieutenant Pigeon a doo-in tonight I'd say.



    BTW if anyone has saudades for Clouds Across the Moon, Tony played it on POTP on Saturday.

  3. If you haven't bought your Rolling Stones tickets yet check them out on YouTube. I believe they're offering prizes for those who can tell Mick what key he's singing in.

    When it came to the eating habits of birds, no-one knew more than Wogan. A familiar cry during the Breakfast Show was

    Tonight's target audience is couples committed to a loving relationship.

    (Alternative lifestyles welcome. BBC Radio Scotland have a policy of non-judgementalism).

    Tell us what you are eating, especially if you are feeding each other.

    You can even request a song! Or not. We don't really care.

    1. Would that be me you're talking about? she said bashfully. Been gigging with the youngsters. Alt-J at the ABC. As many as 4 of us probably weren't students and surprisingly I wasn't asked to prove my age for a permission slip for the bar. An excellent gig, though the 2 supports were a bit tedious after a while. The first was sort of Ummagumma with some Bjork thrown in and there did come a point when you thought OK, kids, very nice, but off you go now. And they eventually did and oh good, now we can get on with what we've come to hear, uh oh, not quite here's some more people doing weird computerised noises and a bit of shouty singing. Oh well, it finally came to an end and Alt-J did their stuff very, very well.

      You probably didn't want to hear all that, but neither did the cat, who preferred watching otters on the telly.

    2. Hot Chip was a similar experience but nevermind that, you're home safe & sound.

    5. Gaie, it was the other way round at the Edwyn Collins gig a few weeks ago. The only youngsters were serving behind the bar.

    Presuming this little Richard will be a shoo-in tonight.
    Especially as Suzanne Gillies has just requested it.

      I mean there are some, far more qualified on this Blog that could aspire to doing that job (I'm thinking Gaie and MM here). Unless of course you're hoping to slip in some layby and car park action to the proceedings.

  14. I'm putting this early Kings of Leon track in as ashout tonight.

    Interesting to see the Hairy C on saxophone. Not sure about all the false mousers though. Reminded me of Norrie and that Movember scam of his. Still, it shows there was a time when you could wear a tank top in a band. However, the guy in the audience in the suit (halfway through)must have felt a tad out of place.
