Obviously a discerning person. Class always shows.
What other Glasgow district has had a song with its name in the title, which reached the top ten?
"WEE"know. Only one (should that be wan?) No need to show the title, all learned people know it. I just hope that sum o the riff raff who contribute here don't plead ignorance. The song has been aired in the USA,Japan, India, and many other countries.

Sum peepul, int wi.

The Palaceum was in Edrom Street, formerly known as Hill Street. It closed in 1953- after a fire,as far as I remember. I lived between Edrom Street and Wellshot Road in a big run-down house, behind the billboards, across from Deans's pub.

I used to go to the Cosmo theatre, which specialised in foreign language films. I do not see any record of it . Is it still going?

the Kings did have lights although the big lights never went up. probably to hide the dirt, it was always smelly as the toilets overflowed all the time... the men working there would come round dousing us with disinfectant from a squirty bottle like in the schools back then..... the light round the sides were green and red stained glass type although right about the black walls.. very dismal hall. which used to be a rollerskating rink.. then a drill hall.

I lived across the road from the Geggie from when the war was just finishing,and I spent most of my young life going there 3 nights a week. I honestly know nothing about paying with jam jars or anything else but cash,no cash ,no night at the pictures. I think this is a bit of folk lore or a myth,quite truly.
