Caitlin-Louise Sheperd PhotoCaitlen-Louise Sheperd set Facebook on fire last Monday when she posted a video of herself “unGlamed”.

Caitlen-Louise is a 17 year old Geordie Girl that suffers from Alopecia, meaning that she has almost no eyebrows and hair loss. As a result, she was bullied at school but has also attracted a lot of negative comments about her current “Glam” lifestyle.

You can see her video on Facebook below (some strong language – it’s from the heart) and then have the chance to listen to what she has to say on Sunday when she speaks to Davie Martin during his Sunday Session.

Davie’s show starts at 8am every Sunday, Caitlen-Louise will join him just after 10am. Don’t miss it, she really is inspirational.

Davie Martin will be welcoming competition winning band Fags ‘n’ Matches on the Sunday Session this week.

Fags N Matches were pronounced the Edinburgh Evening News’ “Search For A Star” winners in 1972 by Hughie Green. They haven’t played together for 35 years but they’ve been persuaded our of retirement for a charity gig this October at Finnegan’s Wake.

Although the band name lived on, the original competition line up hasn’t played together since the mid 70’s. They will be joined by other local groups to perform for charity and say they are looking forward to playing a rehearsing soon.

Davie gets Sunday Sessions going at 8am every Sunday morning. He told the web team that Fags n Matches are due into the studio around 10am.

Singer Ciara HarvieCiara Harvie is an up and coming classical singer from Longniddry in East Lothian. She’ll be making her Radio Saltire début with Davie Martin this Sunday morning.

At just 16, Ciara has already racked up performances at the Edinburgh Fringe. This led to some publicity on STV and towards the end of last year she was invited to sing at the SPIFOX Christmas Carol Concert, one of the premier charity events of the season.

The music bug really has got a hold of Ciara now and she’s seriously considering options for her career.

Tune in this Sunday morning at around 10am to hear her on Davie Martin’s Sunday Session. But if you can’t wait that long, here’s a quick peak at what to look forward to:
