The Glasgow Open-air Testimony Band led by Pastor Raymond McKeown consisted of a group of 'characters' - men who were lifted from the depths of sin and made trophies of Grace. One such was a big man called Duncan Donaldson (Drunken Duncan)...this is his story, and his singing(!!). Enjoy....and if you are not Scottish you will need to listen very closely!
Great Sermon! I found a trove of reel to reel tapes on the side of the road in the trash. These tapes belonged to a man who was an evangelist and missionary from Iowa. No idea how they got here, but the tapes are the cumulated document of this man's evangelism and correspondence with other Christians and preachers he kept contact with circa 1960s-early 1970s. One tape I have is labeled "My Sermon at [illegible] Dallymoney?" Duncan Donaldson. I have listened to it, there is a stirring sermon and singing with accordion accompaniment.

Great Sermon! My name is John Hollywood. I have just listened to 'Duncky' Donaldson. As a emotionally deprived 10 year old child in Airdrie selling the fulltime football results newspaper News, Times, Citizen in the pubs around Airdrie I remember Dunky Donaldson coming to my assistance when I was accosted by some 'bullies' I suffer from my childhood deprivation now some 66 years later and I am just now in tears listening to the Duncky as he gives his sermon. I have lived in New Zealand for 59 years but it is moments as I have described that live in my heart. Thank You Duncky Donaldson Rest in Peace

Great Sermon! This man (Duncan Donaldson)was my school janitor when I was a kid in Airdrie, Scotland. Once a notorius hard drinking violent man. Hardest man in a an area full of hard men. Feared by all (including the police) for many miles around. "Dunky" accepted Jesus and became a true gentle giant and local hero. He was worshipped by the kids at Dunrobin Primary School for his kindness and charisma. I remember Dunky put on a strong man show for the whole school in the gym. Bending iron bars and lifting benches full of children etc.
God bless Dunky!
