'And finally, not everyone’s being doing topical. In fact, here’s the rather lovely 6 Oxgangs Avenue devoted to the history of the development of the area, this week highlighting how the block of flats came into being. Could have been prompted by Who do you think you are? Or just a timely reminder that not everything worth blogging about is in the here and now.'

Comment From Eric Mullen Re: Moon River, Andy Williams Post 27 September 2012

I seem to remember Andy Williams visiting St Marks Church around about 1980 - I don't know why he would have done this but maybe I am getting senile and it didn't happen. Can anyone confirm?

I remember the Andy Williams visit. My mum made me go down (we stayed in the Green)with her to see him. He did a version of Ave Maria with St. Marks kids doing the chorus, for a programme called "Christmas In Scotland" (I think) with Johnny Cash.

I think at the time I was surprised how few people attended. The producers/directors/whoever arranged the seating so the first few rows were full, then as you moved back towards the door, the rows shortened so the last few had only 2 or 3 people. When I seen the show on TV, the place looked heaving! My mum was well chuffed though seeing this big American Star. And she still lives up the hill.
