I'm back!

What a vacation!

To cut a long story short, learn here how, amongst other things, our holiday to Portugal got cancelled and our car drove itself into Loch Lomond, and you'll also see some legendary photos of the car being dragged out kicking and screaming!

We'll no doubt be yapping on about it all in our next episode, which we'll be recording next Wednesday, and I hope to get it online for download a week from today.

It's great to be back - if only because our fortnight of bad luck should hopefully have come to a cheerful end!

Yours aye...

The Third: "Pants"

The Third: "Pants".

'Pants', being the British word for the male undergarment, as well as being our word for something which ain't great (unlike this episode, funnily enough!).

In this, the glossy and much improved third episode of For the Love of G...lasgow, the official podcast of the Top Ten Glasgow Guide, we compose a lovely letter to Mr. or Mrs. iTunes in the desperate hope of becoming a featured comedy podcast. We also blabber on about Alan's return from London to a Glasgow scene akin to Dawn of the Dead, discuss amongst other things our wacky positions on anti-democracy, Michael Jackson's recording of Robert Burns poetry, and how the Japanese police force were duped so cunningly by bits of plastic.

Having tried and failed bitterly to enhance the podcast with some pictures, we still hope tragically that we've done enough in this one to get noticed by, at the very least, the cleaner at iTunes. Even if we're not though, we're absolutely sure that this one's less worse than our previous efforts!

Please remember that we're taking a short break from the podcast whilst I'm on holiday. We should be back at the start of October. Thanks for continuing to subscribe and comment in the meantime!

Tonight's the night...

Well, Alan (a.k.a. "The Talent") is back from London, and I'm heading over to his tonight to record our third episode.

Cue the cries of don't bother guys it's not worth it!

So make sure your ears are suitably free of wax and your diary's completely clear over the coming days, because I'm pretty sure that's how long our next instalment is likely to last! I'll try and get it available for download at some point tomorrow afternoon, weather-permitting, and as usual it'll appear first on the website before it starts to pop up here, in iTunes and the other directories.

Let's keep those fires burning!

As the days go by we've been pretty happy to watch as the number of folks subscribing to the podcast and downloading it begins to increase.

We'll be recording the third episode of the series early next week so it'll be available for you soon. In the meantime though, if you've not heard the first two episodes yet, all you need to do is click the headings on this blog for each episode (The First: "Apologies", and The Second: "Glasgay").

Alternatively, you can subscribe to the podcast at iTunes, which will make sure you get each new episode automatically. Or subscribe to the feed or by RSS or email using the links to the right of this blog. And remember there's an archive of the old episodes on the website as well, so you're absolutely spoilt for choice when it comes to keeping up to date with us.

Next episode we're planning to crank the quality up a gear or two, which will probably mean me speaking less and letting Alan do all the work (!!), so stay tuned, comment away as much as you like, and thanks again for the interest.

We're cooking with gas!

Now, some may well call me a King, or perhaps on occasion "Our Great Overlord".

Sometimes it gets quite embarrassing really, all this kind of adulation. It's like, nowadays I can't walk down the street without the proletariat genuflecting or throwing rose petals at my feet.

So when I tell you that finally the second episode of the podacst now shows up on the iTunes directory, following about a week of my scratching like a wet dog at their door, you can imagine the kind of things I'll now be called in the street.

OK, so you might be thinking that'll be "loser", "weirdo", "scum of the earth", bearing in mind the swelling throng of support for the global movement to rid the world of For the Love of G...lasgow, even if we're still in our infancy!

If you'd like to join that movement, I'm pretty sure they're starting their own website soon, so I'll keep you posted...
