Appropriately it’s the Xmas leftovers for Vic Galloway – he has Camera Obscura, Roddy Woomble, Sparrow & The Workshop, Hidden Masters, Young Fathers, Prides, and The Pictish Trail session tracks – all from earlier in 2013 and all previously unheard. That’s on his Radio Scotland show, Monday, 8.00 p.m.

And on Hogmanay at 6.10pm, on Radio Scotland, Bryan Burnett talks to Ricky Ross and Lorraine McIntosh out of Deacon Blue on the 25th anniversary of the band. It’s followed by a live set from the band.

And on New Year’s Day, former Another Pretty Face frontman Mike Scott is in conversation, again with Bryan Burnett, followed by another live show, from the Barrowland – this time featuring Scott’s current band, The Waterboys.
