be nice if this gets more viewers than the official version on YouChoob


the original, which started out as a ""£150,000 advert," is now a wee bitty more expensive.

".............the artists featured received no fee for their contribution to the advert, £1,550 was spent on their expenses. The cost of production which includes filming, production, producer and director fees was £233,450 along with a further £299,287 for its broadcast.

The advert was also broadcast abroad on American PBS network, which cost £10,000, while the rights to the song Caledonia, which the artists sing cost £15,000 for its usage over a year. "

Nice one Dougie. We always knew you love Scotland. Now we know how much.

I was googling 'Buggerlugs, knickerlegs and elastics away' - a refrain I recall from childhood - in an attempt to recall the song. This led me to Mudcat.org which in turn led me here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr6xjWEYGSs

Pure filth!

NOFX - My Orphan Year, off the new album. Not their best, and definitely not the best of their modern albums (good to see a band get better the older they get, for a change) but a decent listen.

This, from the very nice 'Yoshimi battles the pink robots' album.

Which sprang to mind because I've just noticed that one of the other songs on the album has just been declared Oklahoma's official anthem. 8)

Felonious Munk plays two hours of 50’s and 60s pop on Sunny Govan radio on Sunday mornings from 10:00 am on 103.5FM in Glasgow and online at http://www.sunnygovan.org

This week you’ll hear some sunny sounds, some Nuggets and a great mix of rock, pop and soul records with the occasional bit of chat.
"I before E, except after C" works in most cases but there are exceptions.
