Join me, Scott Gillies, as I fill in for Andy this week.

The “Year under the spotlight” is 1982 and I’ll bring you the headlines from that year mixed in with the best music that 12 months had to offer.

The Vintage Chart comes from 1965 and features tracks from Sandie Shaw, The Seekers and Roger Miller plus many others.

I will also be taking dedications and requests so tune in from Noon on Saturday for a walk through yesteryear only on Radio Saltire.

On this weeks Sunday Roast Xmas Show I will be joined by young musician Kelsey Haig from Tranent.

I heard the Ross High pupil performing at a charity function a few months ago and have been keen to get her on the show so more folk can hear her and I’m delighted she will be in the studio this Sunday to perform a selection of tunes.

It promises to be a great show so tune in this Sunday from 11am.

This week’s show is a seventies special that will be co-hosted by Mr Iain Swanston.

You will remember that Iain was my guest a couple of weeks ago and he enjoyed the visit so much that he wants to make a return to broadcasting, here at Radio Saltire.

We have selected some of our favourite tracks from the 1970’s and we’ll be chatting about what Iain has in store for you when he returns with his own show very soon.

Tune in from 11am
