With Kathie away to Yorkshire, it’s up to Steevie, Fiona and Ellis to hold the fort at The Oban Times’ Something For The Weekend podcast. Up first is David Glennie of the Scottish Slate Islands Heritage Trust about the reopening of the Tardis-like museum at Ellenabeich and why it needs both visitors and volunteers. Plus in this week’s music segment, there’s some relaxing tinkling of the ivories by talented local pianist Marek Kochmanski who usually does his stuff at the Bridge Cafe on every last Saturday in the month. There’s also an exclusive interview with the lost walkers on Jura who recount their epic rescue which saw them set off on a Thursday but not make it back until Saturday night! The show ends with this week’s Scottish Word of the Week from Lesley Duncan, but can you guess what it means…because we couldn’t!
