The Legend that is McKinven, aka The Flying Scotsman.

Had the great pleasure of meeting him and staying for a long weekend with him and his family sometime ago at Shotts in Scotland.

Hmmm. Did you get to talk to him much, or more his female relatives?

Really nice guy, spent most of the weekend talking to him about football, whilst watching the Ryder Cup, and having a few drinks.
Dont think his daughter was that impressed

Hils, might I add that this is MY thread about MY programme!

I suggest that if you wish to talk about your proggramme you could perhaps open your own thread!

i dont want to disappoint you, but..

Southend programmes for the late 50's and early 60's only usually fetch about £2-£3 each.....
