086 – In 1971 they really were being bought for the articles

There’s an old line about gentlemen excusing their purchase of top shelf magazines by saying they were only buying them for the articles.

Maybe there is some truth in that, and so today’s scans are two articles from Parade in 1971. Also, as the second article features Bob McNab, I’ve added a later press photo from his appearance in ‘On the Buses’.

“Bob McNab Turns Actor.
Arsenal football star Bob McNab, pictured here is a track suit, has taken time out to make his acting debut. Bob appeared in an episode of the TV comedy series “On The Buses”, as the star performer in the bus depot football team. Bob is rehearsing with star of the show, comedian Reg Varney, who plays Stan the bus driver – and obviously prefers knee-length “shorts”.
6th march 1973.”
