Like father, like sons for music-loving Ritchie

GLASGOW-based PR fella, Mike Ritchie, supplied a first-person feature for Tuesday’s Daily Record about his outings to live music with his sons, Steven and Martin – the day he was heading for the Bruce Springsteen gig at Hampden Park.

The Record feature was his breezy account of different generations going to shows together more than ever before.

Mike wrote that, for him, “gig going got even better” when his elder boys, now 30 and 27 and veterans of Glastonbury and T in the Park, started teaming up with him. He’s lost count of the number of such outings now.

Mike told allmediascotland that the generation gap only kicked in when a show was over – he headed for home, while the night was just starting for his boys.

Mike has been invited to chat about it on BBC Radio Scotland’s Fred MacAulay Show, this morning.
