Edinburgh Nights – Friday 13th September

A show which will go down as either (a) the one where the phones stopped working, or (b) the one I’ll never let Carey Marx forget. Not to spoil the surprise, but it’s a busy hour that kept me on my toes as I was hosting, kept Tom on his toes as he became a temporary techie, and hoepfuly gives everyone listening an idea of something to do this weekend in Edinburgh.

Edinburgh Nights – Friday 13th September

Twenty Questions Wrong, with Al Shields

It’s the second week of the ‘Edinburgh Nights’ quiz that asks you to be as incorrect as possible. Playing ‘Twenty Questions Wrong‘ this week is Edinburgh based musician Al Shields.

Al has two and a half minutes on the clock, twenty questions in front of him, all he has to do is get those twenty questions wrong in a row. The target is Leah Bonnema’s 55 points from last week.
