    "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."

Crikey!

Remember Kenneth McKellar?

Well if you’re over 45 and live(d) in Scotland you’re bound to because he was a regular on TV in the 60s and 70s. He was the epitome of safe Scottish entertainment back in the day. Normally in Highland dress, normally singing something about hills, heather or ganny’s heilan’ hame. And grannies and grandpas, even some mothers and faithers loved him.

Here he is as you’ve almost certainly never heard him before although rather curiously a picture of his fellow Scottish songster Andy Stewart keeps popping up during this video.

                                                                                             LANGUAGE WARNING!

Does anyone ken if this really is Ken?

Once again, thanks to Claret and Amber

  1. Many years back, I was asked to compere a concert for Cumbenauld’s OAP’s, and the star of the show was Kenneth McKeller … the epitome of every White Heather Club, cliche-ridden, galimaufrey and tartan, kitsch abomination I’d despised since my teens

    I was standing outside the hall’s back-door when a huge 1200 cc Harley Davidson motorcycle roared up, and it’s leather-clad rider dismounted … upon taking off his black-visored helmet, it turned out to be no other than the bold Ken himself.

    I spent the next three hours in his delightful, and hugely ribald company … both telling outrageous jokes, and having a right good laugh

    Is that Ken singing?

    Oh I bet it is … nae bother!!!

  2. Twas in the early 90’s … and, the same year, I also did one with Andy Stewart … again, a lovely man

    Two of my pet-hates that turned out to be class acts … ye never can tell!!
