To­tally hooked

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

DON­NIE Ma­root re­cently popped into the Park Bar for a mid­week pint and was amazed at how busy it was.

He asked Joe, the bar­man, why the bar was so mobbed in the mid­dle of the week. Joe re­sponded: ‘Have you not heard that Cap­tain Hook is per­form­ing at the Kelv­in­grove Band­stand?’

This an­swer con­fused Don­nie for a mo­ment un­til an old dear at the bar next to him gave him a nudge and ex­plained in a dis­crete whis­per that it was 1970s coun­try-rock band, Doc­tor Hook, and not JM Bar­rie’s fic­tional char­ac­ter, Cap­tain Hook, who were due to play at the band­stand.
