Radio Scotland Funny Turns 2010
On March 9 Fred MacAulay compered a night of Scotland's best stand-up comedians on the The Ferry in Glasgow. It was called Radio Scotland's Funny Turns 2010. Here's some photographs from the night and I asked MacAulay and Co Senior Producer Stephen Hollywood about what to expect.
I reckon Fred must have mentioned this programme everyday this week on MacAulay and Co and he said roughly the same thing everytime "I can't wait to hear what it sounds like" - and he said this for two reasons:
1. Cos he wants to know how funny he was (very funny - that's why the whole place was laughing)
2. How on earth the producer made it broadcastable
I hope it doesn't ruin the magic for anyone out there but we do edit our pre-recorded programmes and anybody who was at The Ferry on the 9th of March will know that great night though it was it wasn't going to go out un-cut - no chance. Des Clarke, Raymond Mearns, the ever so well spoken Miles Jupp and even uncle Fred MacAulay - potty mouths one and all. However, and I really mean this, all the best bits are still there - even Raymond's gag about the powerboat - listen out for the edits you won't hear them.
