With Fiona Scott still on her holibobs it’s up to Steevie, Kathie and Ellis to hold the Something For The Weekend fort. In this week’s podcast, intrepid reporter Kathie transports us back to her ‘oarsome’ nine-mile row up the coast from Seil. We meet her fellow rowers and discover the special treats she had in her lunchbox. Ellis also gets an eyeful as he interviews Speedo Mick, the inspirational Evertonian fan who has become a charity fundraiser, which saw him mobbed by admirers on his arrival in Oban. And Steevie regales us with some helpful feedback on our Scottish Word of the Week segment. A listener helps us out with some of those tricky pronunciations. Plus, there’s some beautiful relaxing music from the Scottish folk collective, Staran, featuring the velvet-voiced Oban lassie, Kim Carnie. And with the Scotland national football team making their Euro bow next week, Ellis recalls the great Scotland squad of yesteryear.
