S A T U R ...

Often I find myself mulling over the TV show "Saturday Night Live."

No, not THAT "Saturday Night Live."

I'm talking about the one with Bill Murray and Christopher Guest.

And hosted by Howard Cosell.

So this brought back memories.

Hit 1970s pop band The Bay City Rollers are suing their record company, claiming they are owed millions of dollars in unpaid royalties.

The Scottish group says Arista Records has withheld payments from album sales, merchandise, commercials, film rights and ringtones during the last 25 years.

But the article concludes with a "Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be musicians" warning.

The legal action has been brought by band members Les McKeown, Eric Faulkner, Stuart Wood, Alan Longmuir, Derek Longmuir and Duncan Faure.

Singer McKeown now tours small venues, while Derek Longmuir is a nurse and another former member is a plumber, Mr Krumholz said.

But either Krumholz wouldn't say which member was a plumber, or the BBC didn't think it was newsworthy. (My money's on E. Howard Hunt. Oh, wait, he wasn't in the band.)
