Jack McLaughlin was one of the Radio pioneers on the Pirate Ship - Radio Scotland. His programme 'McLaughlin's Ceilidh' was the Station's top rated show. This later became a 'hit show' on Radio Clyde and Radio Forth before becoming the television series 'Thingummyjig' on Scottish Television. It ran for more that 105 episodes always in the the TV Top 10. Every episode was written and fronted by Jack who was Scottish Television Personality of the Year.
Under his alter ego 'The Laird O'Coocaddens', Jack has become a broadcasting legend and has now penned for the first time, the extraordinary story of the launch of the Pirate Ship - Radio Scotland. Is is a wild tale of Sex Drugs and Rock & Roll set against the Swinging 60s in Glasgow and London
