Liner Notes-" When Grandma Piggott lets fly at th' owd mon with a galvanised mopping bucket, it sparks off a series of riotous events that eventually lead Owd Grandad, as usual, to Tummy Dawkins's pub and a confrontation with a ghost in the gents. In between however, he is butted by an irate, recently neutered goat, floored by a rugby tackle in a Christmas Morning incident in Normacot, and tangles with a potbank labourer, a gang of council workmen, fifteen thousand wasps, and an army of Derby County supporters - not to mention a ferocious cat that resents him abluting near to its newly born kittens.
"In this live performance at The Dunrobin Hotel in Longton, Radio Stoke's Alan Povey relates these and more hilarious escapades involveing Owd Grandad Piggott, the local arch-villan. As usual with Povey, they are related in the true Potteries brogue which has endeared him and his characters to thousands of regular Radio Stoke listeners over the past twelve years.

"Potteries people find it easy to identify with the tough, down-to-earth, accident prone Grandad Piggott, and most will agree that so full of old Potteries flavour are Alan Povey's stories that they could have been composed inside a bottle oven."
