Episode 61 – Tartan Army Travels
What was Elton John’s view on Stephen Glass? How does Rod Stewart keep up to date with East Fife scorelines? Those vital questions and so much more are covered in this genial conversation between Daniel Gray and Sun journalist Ally Ross, BBC man Colin Paterson and ex-Smash Hits editor and Daily Record columnist John McKie. In this mazy dribble of an episode, the trio talk about their Tartan Army travels across the world, including euphoric dejection in Kazakhstan, the importance of talcum powder and a £35 pizza. The closest thing you’ll get to international travel this winter.

My Favourite Year: Paul English, Celtic 1987/88
In the fourth edition of our occasional series My Favourite Year, journalist and broadcaster Paul English joins Daniel Gray for an entertaining gallivant through Celtic’s 1987/88 double-winning season. Our battered old football time machine lands them in a Clydebank car park in the summer of 1987 where they stumble upon Billy McNeill agreeing to become Celts’ boss for a second spell. Then, it’s off for a canter through a magnificent season via a Chris Morris shrine, the beauty of player numbers on shorts, the genius of Paul McStay, Mum’s DO NOT TAPE OVER videos, red cards at Thatcher and buckshee turnstile tricks.
Interview: Craig Easton
Former Dundee United midfielder and current Cowdenbeath assistant manager Craig Easton joins Daniel Gray for a wide-ranging chat about the imminent fixture pile-up, his career in Scotland and England, the lure of Dundonian nightspots and the joy of animals entering the pitch. Craig talks also of his writing career, playing for the McLeans of Tannadice, Britpop, the moments when pre-match nerves truly hit, favourite old grounds, referees falling over and much more. An entertaining chat as eclectic as one of Easton’s mid-90s compilation tapes…
