Teenage Personality, 12 May 1966:

Andy Keiller is a local boy, but he was born in England. He is more than just a local boy - he is a talented, versatile local boy - and Andy wrote most of the songs on his new Gallotone album,called Round About Midnight, himself. You will like this - round about midnight or round about any other time of any day. More please Andy!
