    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Thanks Janice

For two decades on a Saturday morning, Janice Forsyth has hosted a wonderful magazine style music show on BBC Radio Scotland.

It’s not just the music that makes it special, although quite where else one would hear such an eclectic mix presented in a seamless and relaxed style I don’t know.

It’s not just the guests or the quizzes or the chat.

It is a radio show which is greater than the sum of its parts.

Now BBC bosses have decided to axe the show in favour of……….more sport!

Christ! there is wall to wall sport on Radio Scotland. Tune in at random and you’ll probably hear some eejit (broadcaster or member of the public) sounding off about it.

Usually it’s football.

Usually it’s about Celgers or Rantic (see what I did there?)

Shame on the BBC bosses who have made this decision.

I have a feeling they have underestimated what the public’s reaction will be.
