Edwyn Collins brings some magic to the BBC Quay Sessions

WE drive into Glasgow early, drop Margaret off, then I take Mikey to the bus station before making my way to Braehead.

I’ve only just got a coffee and the laptop open when an alarm goes off and the place is evacuated due to ‘an incident’. I sit in the car and get some work done, then go back inside and do some work on trying to sell the guitars/amo to finance the live album pressing.

Next job is trying to suss out how to work OBS – the live streaming software I hope to employ on my next Facebook Livestream. It’s not the simplest configuration, but I eventually get some tests done that suggest I’ve nailed it, We’ll see.

I pick up a bean wrap in M&S for lunch then have a walk before picking up Margaret and stopping off at Ikea to kill some time before we go to the BBC for tonight’s Quay Sessions.

We bump into a few folks we know and catch up with my cousin Sharon who’s in charge of proceedings. It;s a special Quay Sessions – not only because Edwyn Collins is playing, but also because the event kicks of the BBC’s 6Music Festival which is happening in Glasgow over the next few days.

Modern Studies kick things off, followed by Anchorsong and then headliner Edwyn Collins to complete a great night of music.

My cousin Sharon welcomes the audience to the BBC Radio Scotland/6 Music Festival Quay Sessions.
