Title - A scary story (and cumulative-song) about an old woman visit...
Contributors - Stanley Robertson
Reporters - Barbara McDermitt

Summary - A scary story (and cumulative-song) about an old woman visited by a headless bogeyman.

Stanley Robertson introduces a story that he calls 'The Owld Wumman', which is part song and part story. A lonely old woman wished for company, and in came a big bogey man, bit by bit, but there was no head. The old woman asked what the feet were for, and was told, "Muckle trampin," and so on with the other parts of the body. Finally, asked why he had come, he said ... "I've come tae get ye!"
