Eeeh, it's all coming flooding back. I'm trying to remember exactly where Casa Records was now.


Casa Cassettes was just about across the road from the Third Eye Centre (now CCA).

I went in one evening and sat next but one to James Cosmo who was having a dram with his wee westie next to him. I wish I had spoken to him.

James Cosmo lives (or lived) in Charing Cross Mansions. I hadn't realised he's Jimmy Copeland's son.

What are the Charing X mansions like inside?

When I was (very) young I would meet an auntie at the fountain who worked in McLaughlin's bookies at the corner of Lyndoch Place (Terrace?) I remember the to-ing and fro-ing of the shoppers and office workers at the X and the row of shops where the motorway is now. If ever an award was warrented for "ripping out, if not the heart, then at least a main artery of a city" it should go to the M8 at Charing X.
