Thanks. Happy December to you too!
I think we should try for another 200 suggestions for this Friday's theme.Here is something to help:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_board_games
In a spare couple of moments earlier I came up with:Scrabble ~ Wordy Rappinghood – Tom Tom ClubPictionary ~ Pictures of You – The CureRapidough ~ Bend Me, Shape Me - Amen CornerMonopoly ~ He’s In The Jailhouse Now – Jimmie RodgersTwister ~ Get Over You – The Undertones
I'm going to patent Gluedough - a very messy whodunnit game.
There used to be a game for dog lovers called Scoop.
It didn't seem to be on the list
If anyone wants a game I've got it.
My mum will give you cake and lemonade.
..I remember Scoop. You had little cardboard newspaper articles to collect and fit on your front page..Crap game!!..
How can Deacon Blue be from Dundee and the West Coast?
Dundee's quite big and this is a small country
THURSDAYRocky RaccoonWhat else is on the White Album?
This comment has been removed by the author.
There a lot on the White Album. It would have been a great single album with Hey Jude on it.Anyone read Mark Lewisohn's book?
Nope, spill the dirt what did it reveal?
I was asking because it's expensive and didn't want to buy mince.
It's in Greenock library of course. Always a good selection of music books.Haven't read it though - hard to follow The land Lay Still; Got a recent Val McDermid which is just so poorly written - I thought better of her, but it's a sort of inferior Harlan Coben take on the Jade Goodie story, which I suppose should have been warning enough, but didn't know that when I started it.
Another chance to hear Hurt by Johnny Cash tonight?
Sorry Billy. Havent given you much support on the Board Game Theme yet.Here's a few:Cluedo: Whodunnit - TavaresMouse Trap: Rat Trap - Boomtown RatsGo: Go Now - Moody BluesMonopoly: Take A Chance - AbbaLudo: Ludo Shuffle - Boz ScaggsI beamed the Dead Swan signal out to DC last night so hopefully he'll respond with 50 or so.There's probably enough in Monopoly for it to be a theme in itself.
Too busy to think about more at the moment (:-(
Then it would have a monopoly.
Is that the Cellardyke version of the Bat signal?
Did somebody say something?

I heard Kirsty shoe horned in again tonight! No Hurt though.
I wouldn't mind if they played Kirsty every night!FRIDAYBotanic Endgame - Michael Marra ~ ChessProbably too subtle for this show...
Grandmaster Flash may be more on their wavelength (;-)
People pissin' on the stairs...
That's the Specials AKA No.1 for Christmas then
Unless John Lewis air some more ads...
Monopoly piecesDog Eat Dog – Adam & The AntsCars – Gary NumanThe Love Cats – The Cure (cat replaced the iron this year) These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ – Nancy SinatraIron Lion Zion – Bob Marley Battleship Chains – Georgia SatellitesTop Hat, White Tie and Tails – Fred Astaire Needles and Pins – The Searchers (thimble)
Yer joking... I wonder why the iron was done away with?
*BREAKING NEWS*Tonight we're paying tribute to Nelson Mandela with songs about freedom and fighting for your rights.
Odds on Special AKA opening the show?
The Monopoly shouts are still valid. The fights we had in our house....
Hip To Be (Nelson Mandela) Square - Huey Lewis
Does that include freedom to request non mainstream artistes / tunes?
Well you can try!
I feel a wee prediction coming on!
Tonight's predictions:Free Nelson Mandela – Special AKASomething Inside So Strong – Labi SiffreBiko – Peter GabrielMandela Day – Simple MindsTalkin’ ‘Bout A Revolution – Tracy ChapmanRedemption Song – Bob MarleyGive Me Hope Joanna – Eddy GrantState of Independence – Donna SummerFreedom – Wham!I Won’t Back Down – Tom PettyA Change Is Gonna Come – Sam CookePeople Get Ready – The ImpressionsWind of Change – The ScorpionsFreedom of Choice – DevoFreewill – RushI Want To Break Free – QueenFight For Your Right – Beastie BoysDon’t Stop Believin’ – JourneyEbony and Ivory – Macca & Stevie WHomeless - Ladysmith Black Mambazo
George Michael not Wham, Billy. Dont want you dropping points.Not sure the Beasties will fit the mood.Also dont think the Scorpions will be played. The damage caused by radios being hurtled through windows would be immense.Without going all Kelvin Daley on you, this could be playedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhoEX_KanzsOff to watch the draw.
You won't be whistling along then?
Probably right about Beastie Boys but I was giving up the will to live at that point...
I'm sorry Nelson Mandela is dead but isn't the coverage tending towards overkill.
To try to lighten the tone a little I've suggested Randy Newman's Christmas in Capetown.
Wonder if Little Stevie is penning a tribute record as we speak?
Free Nelson Mandela with every two gallons of Fina
Just heard tonight's news - Nelson Mandela is still dead.
Did they play I shot the sheriff?
I thought you'd have been a Shell customer ;-)
I get crabbit when I wear the suit for the FairUnless it's a "Sawndy Claws" suit
I haven't been so upset since Megrahi passed away.
You did well with Blackbird Mr H.
The only choon I heard as I exited the Co-op car park, but wis it not attributed to our blogmeister?
Rod Stewart singin "Silent Night".Think I've peaked too early
Thank Sweet Jesus.. some Blues on BBC4 "later with Holland"
Unfortunately my better half is watching some sentimentalfeelgoodamericancrapfulmaboutSantaClaws so I've gone for an iChoons genius classic rock mix.Shame, caws I wis gettin right intae the Festive season
ES 175 ;-) In my dreams
Staying in tomorrow night for the three hour Mandela special. They're even beginning to compare him with Bono.
So they still haven't found what they were looking for?
I've found this http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-25273104
Madame Popkiss, she spoils me.
I got a Paco Castillo yesterday.
Nice, has your fan base revolted over your decision to go acoustic? Difference is... you can play the thing properly and I'm a dreamer.
I'm going for Grade 4. My career peaked with a debut at the Maclellan Galleries and petered out in east end pubs.
I'm not familiar with , being more of a Clyde 2 man, particularly fond of Helen MacPherson's Country show. Maybe we can sneak some oft requested, never played songs past her.
Mmm. Susan Hay link didnae' work.Ah'm a tube.
Quite a few kids at our school are not familiar with , either. They find ; and : confusing and as for ' lots of folk haven't a scooby where to put it.What's Susan Hay got to do with anything anyway? Roddy Hart, or rather his producer, whom he calls Raging Bull, played Alice's Restaurant Massacree last week. All 18 minutes. Class.
S'urely a mi'stake?
Gaie, Bryan is going to Africa to represent BBC Radio Scotland at Mr. Mandela's funeral. Susan Hay will have to endure the likesay us.
as far as GIO is concerned the likesay us don't exist so I don't think she'll be worried.Pre-broadcast pep-talkMiss B " Now, Susan, remember you're only a presenter, you describe folks' teas and tell how they're dancing round the kitchen and then you put on the record I hand to you. Should you by some accident see an imaginative suggestion for a song you pass it right over to me and I'll replace it with 500 miles, Swim till you Can't see Land or The Bluebell Polka. That's us got the eclecticism angle covered. Remember, in GIO terms 'eclectic' means a mix of tried and tested tunes from different genres, the emphasis being on tried and tested - the listeners are in general not very bright and they think this is an amazing show of originality. Obviously to keep this charade up we will play over the week possibly as many as two of your own preferences thereby extending our repertoire to 24 songs. Got that, Susan? Just to be clear, I'm the boss, don't let the insane giggling fool you. I may not know much about music, but by hokey I know what I like to have played on GIO. Now off you go, the first request will be from Margherita Still, followed by Bohemian Rhapsody as suggested by Erik Zoha and don't forget to mention that Fergie's having lobster bisque for his tea.
Yeah, everyone is convinced they have a GSOH and that their taste in music is eclectic. We'll see.
Did youse know that Captain Ramius is moving to Sweden?
He'll be all right for furniture. Is there any more info via that link?
He tweeted the link, I don't know any more.
Yeah, it's true folks. It's been in the pipeline for a year and more. We're off to Stockholm, lock, stock and 3 wains on Jan 6th. Galen's spot on re furniture - we're trying to get rid of a tonne of our current stuff cos it's all IKEA anyway. Also a load of other stuff too - anyone want a fair quality upright piano?
Take the piano - the IKEA ones are dreadful. Good luck with your new venture.
yes, very best of luck to you and your family, hope your Swedish is better than my Gaelic.
wits swedish for 'babs'good luckcheers frae the dale
Is it yon dude who used to subscribe to the show where you choose the music?
Heuten Geuten captain,Avoid lobster if you eat outDC
Ach I canny get thae links tae work. Type Swedish Chef Lobster intae youchoob an you'll get the driftObviously wrong by the way caws the chef is trying tae cook a red lobster
Och, awa' 'n' bile yer lobster!Bon voyage, Cap'n!
Going overseas doesnt mean you cant contribute and continue to listen CR. Just keep Alison Again on speed dial.
All the best captain!
Scotch, was that you and Glen in the balcony?
Aye! He's the auld yin.>8-D
Waldorf: hey, you old fool, you slept through the show!Statler: who's the fool? You watched it!
OH OK, hat-trick to me.
Well done, you win a night out with Susan Hay (;-)
I demand a recount
Good luck Capn - big step!
