I just listened to the Richard Holloway programme on Radio Scotland. He was talking to the amazing Una McLean and they brought up the subject of Scots comedian, Lex McLean (no relation). Lo and behold, I found this on YouTube...



Lex died in 1975 and I guess almost no episodes or clips have survived so it was a trip to find this and two more. And then I also found some Chic Murray so that's an entirely different rabbit hole. See you around 2pm...

On the radio thing, Una tells a story about Lex playing Ayr that pretty much sums up everything some of us stand for. Amazing stuff. It seems as though this isn't available on the listen again feature yet. Maybe later. Here's the link to the page just incase.
