Why not say “my son” or use his name? The bugger’s from Perth not the West of Scotland.

He is perhaps trying to affect faux working class credentials , like, you know , refering to 'ma heid' rather than 'my head'. Like you, I wish people wouldn't do it but ah'm no gonnae bust ma coupon o'er it !

Didn’t realise that that annoyed you so much. I shall refrain from such language in the future.

He’s been living in Glasgow for a few decades now, not uncommon to pick up some of the local lingo

Having panned the show overall, I feel compelled to give Tam Cowan credit for his shift in Lossie last week. Two full hours, and he was hilarious. Wasn't really sure what to expect from him as a speaker but he was terrific.

@Shandön Par with another mention.

Media hoor. 

Something that does grate on my gentle Edinburgh ears is Tam's pronunciation of "Shandon". He pronounces it almost like two words meaning a rotten Aberdeen fan.

In the unlikely event I'm ever on the show I shall be pronouncing "Motherwell" as "Shi Teh Ole" to teach him.

I usually have a friendly bet with my mates on how long it'll take after we switch on that we hear the word Motherwell or St Johnstone. 

Regardless when we switch on its usually under a minute.

What are you on about? It's a description of his son and is used right across Scotland.

Calm down, calm down, you are allowed to have a different opinion from me without losing it. I bet there's a few things that you don't like that don't bother me. Like Saintees signing Andy Considine for example.

Hope somebody suggests "Annie I'm not your daddy" for a Father's Day tune.

One for referees: "Strangers in the night"

One for Fifers "He ain't heavy, he's my brother"

How did it go ?

They got more out of him in 10 minutes than they would if he had been in the studio with Tam interrupting.  It was an unusual format but if they wanted to talk to him that was the way to do it.

Seeing that's who they support, its hardly a surprise is it.

Maybe you're just jealous they never mention East Fife.

Better than mentioning the Uglies

Actually the reverse would apply, to both points.
