Episode Two – ‘Finding Out You’re Pregnant’ – OUT NOW

Our Dude Dads are Garry Spence and Grant Stott.

You know them from the worlds of radio and TV, print and panto, but you probably aren’t aware of the fact they are also perfectly placed to be our expert Fathers.

Garry is Dad to 8 year old twins Hollie and Rachel plus their little brother 3 year old Charlie.

Grant has Sam (23) and Lori (19).

From their various experiences in the world of fatherhood, these men have graduated to the highest accolade of paternity – the lofty title of Dude Dads.

Think of them as The A Team of Dadkind.

Given their vast collective back catalogue of Dadding, we’ve chosen them to help with your Dad problems, your Da’Lemmas. (I thangyoo, here all week. Don’t forget to tip your waitress).

They listen, consider and then dispense their collective wisdom – their Dadvice.

I guarantee when I tell you this week’s Da’Lemma from Dylan in Aberdeen, you will never come up with the answer our Dude Dads did.


You ready? Here it comes.

Dylan is coach to his son’s school football team. They train twice a week, and then play on the weekend. During the week Dylan feels they make great progress and plans for how they want to play. All the kids know their part by kick off.

And 30 seconds after that, it’s all shot to hell and in tatters when the other Dads all shout conflicting instructions and the kids become horribly confused, running about like headless chickens, any game-plan completely out the window.

Dylan’s Da’lemma? How does he get the other fathers to shut it on the sidelines?

What would you suggest?

Remember the challenge. You will NEVER match the answer from our Dude Dads.

I've been on the radio for almost 30 years (not continuously!) and am a media bloke entrenched in one of the loveliest parts of the world. I present radio shows for Global on Smooth Radio, run an audio media company - Mellis Media - and I also work for Aberdeen Football Club and write for a number of local media outlets. But that's work. My life and passions revolve around my wife, Lynne, and our kids, Joshua and Gracie. I’m a dog father to Ernie.
