Welcome back Norrie.Tonight it's childhood TV themes then it goes downhill.
Thansk Billy. Themes not particularly inspiring. Still I remember a childhood of tattie holidays long summers and skint knees. But not so many theme songs.
I have just been accused by Ronnie McGowan of having a poor work ethic as a child. This is obviously where my life started to go wrong.
You refused to sweep the chimneys?Mibbe you should ask forthe theme from the Sooty show tonight.>8-D
Norrie, here they are!Did you get the ball in the wee hole?
What are essential divas?
Its an anagram.
Yes Mr Git several times and on the same day. However golfing at Port Glasgow yesterday was not such a pleasant experience and I returned my worst card in several years. I do not know how Gaie can live in this area and maintain such a cheery disposition.
Port Glasgow was a mistake, you should have gone to Whinhill, one of the many jewels in Inverclyde's crown.
Joe Bonamassa passed this on to me, I thought you might enjoy it, Mr Git?
Play that dead band's song. I glanced at the above and thought Joe Bonamassa had passed away for a minute. Johnny Gustafson who turned down the Beatles and ended up in Roxy Music has joined the supergroup in heaven.
Freebird wis fab! Thanks, Gaie!Nae wunner Artimus took his shirt aff...
Certainly Freebird would've tore the shirt aff you (as we say in cheery Inverclyde)
Poor showing for tonight's theme on t'other side. I guess many here and there are partnerless so an odd choice of theme. (Fully expect The L E to have something to say on this later).I think some are inventing too. Have to be. (You know who I mean).
I get the impression that many correspondents are in prison where the wrong choice of music could be fatal.
The Liquid Entertainer's choice of song for the ex certainly worries me.
Going off to Chile for a few day to see this.http://www.homelessworldcup.orgYup, its my 3rd football World Cup in 6 months.
Is it a big issue in Chile?
Enjoy your break
Thanks Billy, though its more fact finding than pleasure. Still, havent seen the Andes before.
They have built a replica next to the M8 at Deans, Livingston.Deans is an anagram of Andes....cue X-Files music...........
Well done Henri. Medicine Jar at last.
Just looked at the playlist. What is the point of wasting half the show playing songs heard a million times before? This is what you do, novice producers, you simply announce that you'll now play a less well-known song by Adele, whose Chasing Pavements you will most certainly know. Then instead of wasting time you get on with playing another hidden gem and everyone's life is enriched rather than stultified. Any more advice needed, radio Scotland, you only need to ask.
Agreed!"Chasing Pavements" is on my 'life is too short to listen to this crap' list. (It's a long list). I didn't even know that Adele was responsible until Oor Bryan said so.
Adele can sing which puts her in a minority on this show.
That's Alvin away. How many have had two bites at the cherry?
Is that just your jealous mind at work?
Ca CHOO! Sorry I've got a cold.
Must hae been yer Coo that caused it?
Possibly, it's Friesian in here.
well put your jersey on
That'll do nothing for my shorthorn.(This correspondence is now closed - Ed.)
a load o bullcheers frae the dale
Simmental conversation right enough. Heifer they remarks are incomprehensible.
Must be some mish-steak...What's brown and sounds like a bell?
The John Brown Bell.Ask me another! I'm on a roll!!!
Dunnnnnnggggggg........It's the way I tell em!
Galloway! Stop all yer mooing, that's my job! Kerry the message to Farcebook, you lot ox too have known dexter.
John Brown had a raw deal but at least his song goes marching on.
Oh my goodness, Jack Bruce gone now.
Not played enough despite being championed by Henri. At least we had the Cream reunion and his name lives on (appropriately) in the social space of the RSAMD/Conservatoire.
Howdy all. On this weeks stiffs... Did you know a) My Coo ca Choo was actually sung by Peter 'Love me love my dog 'Shelleyb) Rafael Ravenscroft got paid £37.50 for his sax session on baker st whilst rafferty earned annual royalties of 80k for the songc) I met henri this week and he didn't tell me jack bruce was going to die
You should have known - everybody's going to die.
You sure about a) Paolo?
lMONDAYOde De Toilet (The Toilet Song) - Brad Paisley
Songs with brackets was my suggestion. I feel a prediction coming on.
You'll never guess who I bumped into last night?
Correct. Please enlighten us...
Was it a wee chubby guy who had clearly been on the drink in Barxelona for the weekend. If so it narrows the field....

Some good tracks (on there). You have gone (parenthesis mad).Do any of you clever people know why the (random use) of parenthesis eg in The Herald had started?

However DEVO top the Stones
Agreed but BB only has one DEVO song as you well know.
Jimmy Saville used to dock you points if you didnt say "open bracket, close bracket" when guessing the titles on the Double Top Ten Show.I'm sure Bryan will make reference to that tonight.
I'm not so sure about that actually.
Back in Rio.Norrie you'll be pleased to hear I found the time to visit United's official red wine sponsor.
Welcome back. That doesn't sound like fact finding...
Excellent! A Chilean Red is superb. Single Estate preferably. Casillero del Diablo more than acceptable!
Were you eligioble to vote?
No. Never took citizenship.I was in the Devil's very own cellar.Plenty facts found Billy.
Tonight Bryan I going to be Mel Brookes...To Be Or Not To Be (The Hitler Rap)
.TUESDAYKeep it Country!
What's the theme?
.A wee clue...
I see another clue was further up the page!
Not a very good prediction. Plans to buy lottery ticket shelved.
Here Julie! I thought you were the Notthegetitonblog's official birthday calendar girl? You forgot our Rio correspondent today!Happy Birthday Adam!
I'm too busy being selfish...and anyway, I didn't know. Happy Birthday AFR Jx
