World record for the Sons on Christmas Day

Two members fo the Call of the Cuckoos Tent, Dave de Kort and Willie McIntyre, both (independently) have weekly shows on Bute Island Radio every Tuesday. With Christmas falling on a Tuesday this year, it means that both these Sons will have Christmas Day shows - a world first for any tent. Willie's shows are Back to the Seventies (at 2.00pm) and Spinning the Sixties (at 3.00pm) and Dave's Indulgence is at 6.00pm. And, yes, Laurel and Hardy will have a mention. You can also catch Willie later on Christmas Day on Heartland FM at 10.00 with his Sixties show.

And remember - they are on every week!
