I also saw Jack Milroy in the record shop on Sauchiehall Street( don´t recall the name) about 20 years ago - I gathered he was a regular there.

Ah think Jack wis jist whit he portrayed in Francie and Josie - a wee Glesga man wi aw the faults and virtues o the species - whereas Rikki Fulton wis merr the intellectual type. He probably did Spot The Ball. smile.gif

When I was younger and a budding musician I used to busk in Sauchiehall Street with a mate called Tony on Banjo. We were playing in front of a shop window one day when Chic Murray appeared, stopped right in front of us, started tapping his foot and seemed to be listening intently.

As we played Tony whispered, 'Chic Murray's here, launch into a medley and keep it going, he might get us somewhere - I think he likes us.'

Jeezus I played till my fingers nearly fell aff, all through it Murray stared at us, we must have kept it going for about ten minutes before running out of tunes to string together. We stopped. Murray walked forward and I thought 'This is it! Stardom beckons!'
He looked at us both and said 'That was excellent lads. Now would you move over and let me see the price o' that coat in the shop windae.'

Chic Murry's genius was apparent in Gregory's Girl; my self like most others was waiting with baited breath for him to come up with a punch line but he never did. I'm still waiting wondering if I missed it. He played the heidmaister with a penchant for cream buns.
