The Glue Radio Pilot

As I'm sure you've read umpteen times we had a radio pilot on Radio Scotland in January and again in August. Well, it looks unlikely that there will be any more episodes made. So if you never heard it or want to have a copy for yourself, you can now download the show as an mp3 from this RapidShare link.

The Dots at The Grand

If you're not coming to see Odds and Sods on Friday then what about a music gig? My pals All About The Dots are playing the Classic Grand in Jamaica Street.

They're playing support to Doll and the Kicks, and from what I can make of the four act line-up they'll probably be on first, so get there early to see them. Doors open at 7pm and it's a mere 6 quid to get in.

You can download a couple of songs from their website or head over to their MySpace page and hear a few more.

Hooray For Saturday

I've began presenting my own radio show. It's called Hooray For Saturday, I know it sounds like a kids' TV show, but trust me it's not. It's on Glasgow Uni's station Sub City.

So far I've had three shows and they've all went all right. No major disasters or nothing. I've been playing music, some comedy and gibbering, although I try to keep the talking to a minimum. I have been touting the idea of having some comedy guests on in the future, but I've so far been slow in organising it.

You can listen live on the Sub City website from 9am to 10am on a Saturday or listen again at the link at the top of the post. All three shows are there just now.

There's a fan page on Facebook. Gonnie join it and save it being just me.

The Marriage Ref

Here's an interview with Jerry Seinfeld from The Guardian. In it he talks about his appearances on the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm as well as his new gameshow 'The Marriage Ref'.

He doesn't think much has changed in the pitching process since he was talking to NBC about Seinfeld in the 1980s. "Broadcasters still use the word excited to mean nervous," he nods. "Like, Endemol saying they have loads of shows out here that they're excited about." He gives a sly grin.

It's Tonight

'Odds and Sods' opens tonight at the Ramshorn Theatre in Ingram Street, Glasgow. It finishes on Saturday. The last night has sold out, and some of the other nights are selling well. Still plenty of tickets left for tonight however. Monday and Tuesday are the cheap nights at £6 or £4 concession.

Fraser and I are pretty happy with the way it's shaped up. The cast are all excellent, we've got the best stage manager in town and the set looks great too. So come along and see it.

Limmy's Show - That's a Wrap

That's five weeks filming on Limmy's Show done. It'll not be a surprise to you if I say every second of it was a total pleasure. I had a great time on it from start to finish. Everyone on it was great to work with all throughout the production. I have no doubts that it will be very funny once it hits the TV screens come late 2009 or early 2010.

My set of photographs can be viewed by clicking this link. You'll notice that there are very few photos of me in there. Should you wish to see some of me looking fat and daft, you can hit up my fellow cast member Omar's Flickr page for some of his photies.

Over at Brian's blog he's running a Q & A on the show, so go and join in if you haven't already. He's also got a new video up on his YouTube page.

Classic Keano

On watching The Football League Show last night I had to laugh at Roy Keane's interview. After the latest Ipswich Town loss, the BBC reporter asked Roy if he'd be staying on in the job. The look on his face was a picture. You can watch the interview yourself, by going onto the BBC site.
