Take Two...

Well, Alan and I are sitting here right now in Macdonald Mansions. We started doing the podcast. Episode 6.

We then stopped doing the podcast. It sucked. Alan's now trying to climb out the window, having purged himself of his clothing and cleansed his white, skeletal body in Fairy Liquid.

So what I'm trying to say here then is that Episode 6 remains in production. We're going to try to record it again on Friday, the Night of Hallowe'en.

Cue the baited breath...

The Fifth: "Bones"

The Fifth: "Bones".

In our brand spankingly new and pointless episode, we laugh pretty much continuously from start to finish, although after listening to it you may begin to wonder why. During certain lucid moments we manage to dribble out some nonsense about Santa singing at Hampden Park, why Kevin Keegan went back into football management after watching Scott at the Glasgow Soccer Circus, how chocolate wispas might add a new dimension to the death penalty, and how Alan would ruin Children In Need.

We also issue a serious PR statement on Hungarians, try to convince our female listeners to give Dave Hitler a go, and most drainingly, discuss the recently rumoured release of the Indiana Bones movie.

No really, this is a podcast about Glasgow!

The same old blues

Well just as I thought I'd got to grips with the crazily-complicated technology behind podcasting, I'm struck yet again with the same old blues.

The fifth and most recent episode of the For the Love of G...lasgow Podcast is now available on the website by clicking here, but that's where the good times end. The problem's with the feed, which means that until I sort the thing, the new episode will not show up on iTunes or any of the other podcast directories.

As always, I'll keep you posted, and to thank you for your eternal patience in the face of my pure ineptitude, we've recorded a wee bonus sketch which I'll release at some point soon.

Fire up the mics

Just to let you know that Alan and I will be recording the fifth episode of the podcast tonight, and that we're also planning on doing a bonus sketch just to thank you all for your interest.

For those who don't know how to comment on this blog, just have a look underneath where you see the word "comments", click it and give it laldy. The reason I mention this is because I got a message through the website the other day saying "your podcast sucks. cant even coment on blog so came hear" (the spelling ain't mine!).

So please feel free to comment all you like on this blog, head over to the website and do it there, or if you've come to the view that we put out just about the greatest podcast you've ever heard in your puff, why not fire on a review in iTunes so we can rise up to the geek-fuelled cloud of superstardom on which we deserve to rest.

I'll try and get the new episode and bonus on at some point tomorrow, so check back soon!

The Fourth: "Improvised"

The Fourth: "Improvised".

Returning after a short but eventful summer break, our fourth episode of For the Love of G...lasgow weighs in at just under 60 minutes for the first time, there being little in the way of interesting material for us to work with. So instead we yap on about cancelled holidays, cars rolling into Loch Lomond, why you should think twice before visiting a Hungarian dentist, how the credit crunch has reduced Alan to eating soil & buying shares in oven chips, and all about the importance of Glasgow's forthcoming Alcohol Awareness Week.

It promises to make you laugh out loud when you least expect it, but as we have all come to learn in this time of financial crisis, promises are merely the duplicitous propaganda of the corporate elite to shape the global political agenda. Don't worry though - we don't say anything about that kind of thing, being more concerned rather with why iTunes hates us with a passion!
