[attachment=51469:StanleyBaxter1953.jpg]Hello Glasgow.

I was a wee boy working at the Fortingall Hotel when I met Stanley Baxter who was on his honeymoon in 1953. He gave me his photograph and autograph with his catch phrase: "if ye want me thingnme ring me." from his radio show. I would like to contact him before it's too late for both of us. Any help Glasgow? Thanks. Alastair in Victoria, BC

I just loved Stanley Baxter’s TV shows, especially Parliamo Glasgow. That must have been the early 70s?

Do you remember
“Izzy affeez” - Izzy affeez bloomin heid
“Yeez’ll hufty ” - Yeez’ll hufty move yer seats (This was actually shouted at us in a mobbed lounge bar at the Crowwood Hotel
“No hoozfurra” - No hoozfurra wee cuppa tea
“Gonny geeza” - Gonny geeza brekk, hen

I wish I could remember more, but it’s so funny to hear these being used. 🤣

My earliest memory of SB would be in early 50s on the radio with Jimmy Logan but I was fortunate to see him live in HM Theatre, Aberdeen in 1970/71. John Grieve was also in the show.

No, I’m with Taurus. Stanley Baxter did his “wummin” dancing, too. But, Taurus, I don’t remember him having lovely legs?
