Busy old weekend for the Kingdom FM team as we headed out to switch on the lights of Fife.
Saturday saw us heading to Dunfermline and the High Street with Darren & Barry on the ‘other’ stage, Nick at the city chambers and Diane & me on the main stage. Too many highlights but I have to mention Saor Patrol - the drummers and piper and our mass air guitar session which we held to give away a proper electric guitar (thanks Kennys Music). Santa, the casts of Puss In Boots & Snow Queen plus the 7,000 or so people in the High Street ‘clapped’ on the Christmas lights (don’t ask).
Sunday saw Diane and me at the Kingdom Shopping Centre with Vivian the belly dancer, John & Rachel our Stavros Flatley dancers and,….. the real Stavros Flatley. The guys were absolutely fantastic and the crowd provided a lot of noise to make them feel welcome. We learnt during the roadshow that if I want to be part of the Stavros team I’m going to have to put on weight (I loved that one!) and that I shouldn’t ask silly questions to a belly dancer. As everyone at the roadshow found out that just leads to me having to learn some belly dancing on stage. Just as well I left my dignity at the door!
As much as it was great fun being Ian this weekend and working with Diane I hope he’s over his flu soon and back to work.
