Merry Christmas from all of us at BBC Radio Scotland, thanks for listening to the station, visiting the website and giving us your feedback.

June was another busy month on BBC Radio Scotland and here are some of the highlights as featured on the BBC Radio Scotland blog...

Our very first blog in June came from the MacAulay and Co team who provided information on writing the perfect letter.

A brand new series of Swots broadcast on the station featuring Miles Jupp as headmaster and Susan Morrison as school secretary. We were there for all the recordings to take photos and film some behind the scenes action.

It was a big month for music on BBC Radio Scotland. Ricky Ross met up with Willie Nelson on his tour bus and recorded a session with Annabelle Chvostek, both for broadcast later in the year.

Edith Bowman began a six week series of her album show, and Davie Scott's Classic Scottish albums continued with features on Big Country's "The Crossing" and The Jesus and Mary Chain "From Westwood to Hollywood".

The annual Rockness Festival took place and Classics Unwrapped visited Orkney for the St Magnus Festival.

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra celebrated its 75th anniversary and the Young Jazz Musician of the Year took place at the Old Fruitmarket.

There were two other big events in June. The World Cup took place over in South Africa, and although Scotland weren't represented on the field, there was a fair amount of coverage on the station, not least about the summer craze of the Vuvuzela which Sports Report presenter Liam McLeod tried out for us.

The other major event was the Royal Highland Show from Ingliston. BBC Radio Scotland had a large presence at the show this year with many shows coming live from the grounds including MacAulay and Co, Brian Taylor's Big Debate and Janice Forsyth. We were there to take photos of all the programmes, exhibitions and animals.

And, finally the Cybermen visited BBC Scotland at Pacific Quay.
