'I was a gaffer, he's not a gaffer'

Sean is not happy with footballers saying 'gaffer' when they mean the manager because when Sean built Birmingham he was a real gaffer.

Sean is not happy with footballers saying 'gaffer' when they mean the manager because when Sean built Birmingham he was a real gaffer.
Listeners claim that Sean got the time wrong for the news bulletin and he says sorry even though he didn't really say the wrong time. James in Omagh asks about the origin of the saying 'It didn't pan out'. Sean knows it's about gold but then asks what the origin of 'scapegoat' is. Billy says it's from the Bible. Sean went back to a tub of ice cream but there were wee crystals on it and it put him off. How can he stop that happening? Mickey Todd says he should eat the ice cream in one go. Ringo made a huge difference to The Beatles when he joined them. Music from The Beatles, Four Seasons, Paul Simon, Ringo Starr, Billy Connolly and more.
