Lauren Collier is one talented Ayrshire lass who has created one of the albums of the year Uddevalla .  A warm blanket of music to cuddle up with and enjoy with a single malt. The media notes are fairly ungenerous with a description stating  fusion of global traditional and electronic music.

Peatbog Faeries ‘I See a World’

Like a fine wine the PeatbogFaeries seem to get better as they age. I dont know what goes on to build up their creative juices but by hell I want some. Its a big sound with a lot going on and when listening through headphones one firstly gets a distinctly Highland taste with psychedelic keys and strings and brass and ........   Yes folks there is a cornucopia of beautiful noise going on and with Peter Morrison and Ross Couper leading […]

14th Nov Andrew Wilson was talking about the politicisation of poppy day. It seems you may be persecuted for not wearing a poppy in the UK. Other symbols of respect are available so why the loyalty to the red poppy. Of course the British establishment love nothing more than talking of the war it gives tham an angle to reminisce of a time no one remembers so they can create a false sense of patriotism. Richi Sunak says higher taxes […]

Sun 27th Nov . What passes for the British constitution is ­famously uncodified and largely unwritten, a make-work of rags and patches, empty bling and hand-me-down protocol which politicians treat as gospel or guidelines as political expediency tends. The British constitution is the name we give to dignify a bag of stitch-ups and holding positions, confidence tricks, stopgaps and compromises. It’s a bundle of old parchments, negotiable ­etiquette, conventions more honoured in the breach than the observance, and the all-important […]

24th Oct Another packed week started with the news that we had a new PM in Rishi Sunak. He was coronated just after we came off air on Friday so myself and Andrew Wilson looked at the carnage that is the economy and the Tory party. It was a catch up that explored the new underwhelming cabinet choc full of yesterdays men. Surprisingly of all was the reintroduction of Suella Braverman who breached the code of conduct only a week […]

One of the most frustrating things about trying to schedule guests is  when they first agree then never reply to your messages. This happened twice when a journalist assured me was fine to come on air then forgot all about us. It is never certain why guests cancel and it can be for very good reasons but when  he has read your messages and still refuses to reply it really is tough to take . We had another cancel for […]

19TH Sept Well after a busy schedule over in Nova Scotia making connections with those interested in the radio station, it was back to business as usual. Or so I thought, an email from the Press Association was 'advising' to observe the Queens funeral and to halt broadcasting. I immediately felt threatened and decided to broadcast despite their advice. The response was amazing we attracted a whole raft of new listeners craving normality. On the show was Andrew Wilson who […]
