Remember getting a photo with Freddie Starr before a mid-80's Scotland v England game at Wembley. He was with Scott Fitzgerald (?)

I live in a 1903 tenement which was refurbished 12 yrs ago (just prior to me moving in). Each close in the street has a unique colour scheme, i.e they painted over all the tiling with cheapo paint, ruining the unique character of the close. Looking at these pictures makes me want to speak to the oth...

That'll be the beach where there was a small brick building that the locals painted windows and curtains on the outside and wrote "Shore Inn" across the front.

Proper local radio stations (as opposed to media superwhores like Clyde) are governed by a charter which states what genre of music gets played when and what level of talk and local issues are required. There is some leeway at evenings and weekends when specialist music gets an airing. (I saw the ch...

What happened to Third Lanark was uppermost in our thoughts when we reformed the Bankies. The important part was to get back into football as soon as possible, as the momentum would wane if we left it too long. As TC says there was no chance of me going to watch another team but I did spend my year ...

I was kayaking into the harbour on Friday and had a wee blether with the guy that owns the large tug in the centre of the previous photo. It's an ex-Mississippi tug called Utah.
