From the Daily Mirror:

The feast day of St Andrew, Scotland’s patron saint, falls on the 30th of November every year.

Saint Andrew and his brother Peter were fishermen called to be Jesus’s disciples. Andrew was eventually crucified, with a tradition growing up that the cross to which he was bound was an X-shape or Saltire, like the white cross on his flag.

Rockin’ the 902: Had the great pleasure of sitting at a table with these two tonight

And heard them sing and play for nearly four hours. With others, of course.

Rachel Davis is the best damn fiddle player I’ve heard in years. Check her out, I know you’ll agree.


Song of the night

“Mellow Doubt” by Teenage Fanclub. Can’t believe this song is seventeen years old.

It gives me pain, I think of you
The things together that we’ll never do
At first it’s cold and then it’s hot
Trying to be someone that I know I’m not

In trouble, I know it
I’m feeling,  I can’t show it
These feelings, don’t go away

I remember you, lines on your face
Sharing a moment in the perfect place
Deep in your eyes, inside your head
I try to reach you when I’m in my bed

In trouble, I know it
I’m feeling, I can’t show it
These feelings, don’t go away

There is no choice, what I must do
Nothing is greater than to be with you

In trouble, I know it
I’m feeling, I can’t show it
These feelings, don’t go away
