The boys then head from Glasgow to meet musical stadium filler Amy Macdonald. Over a round of bowls, they discuss how Amy got into the industry and what it’s like to perform home and away. Martin and Phil then chat to actor and comedian Greg McHugh about his most famous character Gary Tank Commander and all things Edinburgh Festival.
