Fags, Mags and Bags is back
One of the most enjoyable days in my tenure as Radio 4 blogger was spent in a Sauchiehall Street studio in Glasgow with the team behind Lenzie's best-known radio sitcom Fags, Mags and Bags. They were there to record episode four of the new series - which starts today at 1130 - and I was there to sit on a sofa and eat doughnuts purchased from the Greggs round the corner.
While there I also took a lot of photographs and recorded an interview with creators (and lead actors) Donald McLeary and Sanjeev Kohli. Mina Anwar, who plays a character called Malcolm (for reasons that will become clear) in the new series, was on hand to ask the questions so I was able to concentrate on the doughnuts. Listen to the result here:
