first, radio: well, I think we can sdafely say that ALL of the radio shows in Scotland this week will be featuring T in tye Park highlights in some form. SO, a quick runthrough of what’s what:
Vic Galloway – Monday, 8-10pm, BBC Radio Scotland. More here.
Ally McCrae & Jen Long’s Radio One Introducing show, live on Sunday/Monday at midnight on Sunday July 8… , or hear last week’s show.
Jim Gellatly’s InDemand, on Sunday at 7 p.m. www.indemandscotland.co.uk actually has The Kaiser Chiefs. However, on his www.amazingradio.co.uk show on Sunday (July 15) from 2-4pm, he has interviews with Brown Bear & The Bandits, Anderson McGinty Webster Ward & Fisher, Bacchanal Party, Bwani Junction and The Mirror Trap.
Marion Scott, on Moray Firth Radio on Sunday at 8 p.m. – on air from Wick and Thurso via Inverness across to Aberdeen.
TV: A busy week on the gogglebox, and not just from the various re-runs of T in the Park (they’ve not told us when they’re on, but you’ll probably not be able to move for them if you hit the red button).
On BBC ALBA, Thursday 12 July (10.00 – 11.30pm) and Friday 13 July (9.45 – 11.45pm), coverage of the 2012 HebCelt Festival.
The Proclaimers and Kassidy will be amongst the headline acts presented by Niall Iain Macdonald, from Lews Castle Green in Stornoway.
In the ‘recently seen’ pile, a BBC documentary on former Astrid frontman Willie Campbell.
In the news, kinda – an Edinburgh-based internet TV channel has launched, dedicated to the arts, books and film. And a bit of music… not a lot just now to be honest but doubtless more to come.
Summerhall TV – as in the multi-arts centre based at the former Royal Dick Veterinary School – is online now amd has some archive stuff in the music section for now, which older readers may recall seeing on Dundee’s Channel Six (or possibly the e-tv channel that was based in Aberfeldy, all around 10 years ago.
And… another Detour TV show, this time with live footage from Midnight Lion, Vukovi and Honeyblood, plus a live session from Hector Bizerk‘s Louie and Stanley Odd‘s MC Solareye, and interviews with Twin Atlantic‘s Sam Mctrusty, and DJ Mash.
