There's so much great content hidden away on the Radio Scotland website, that we thought it might be a nice idea to write a blog each Friday highlighting what you can find on some of the week's pages just in case you missed it.

Good Morning Scotland: Gary Robertson spent much of the week camped outside Westminster following the twists and turns of the General Election and speaking to politicians, pundits and other people in the know. The team took lots of photos which can be seen on their pages, beginning on Monday 10 May.

MacAulay and Co: Four months on from the Radio Scotland "A New Year, A New You" series, Fred caught up with presenters Shereen Nanjiani, Gary Robertson, Euan McIlwraith and Vic Galloway to see how their personal challenges are progressing. Shereen had a fear of moths - Andrew MacDonald from the Butterfly and Insect world in Edinburgh visited the studio with one of his moths to see how Shereen reacted!

Tom Morton: Tom's live guest on Monday was Neil Hannon from The Divine Comedy. Watch the video of his acoustic performance.

My Life in 5 Songs: Phil Cunningham has some great guests on the current series including Pat Kane, Iain Anderson, Horse, Kris Drever and Findlay Napier. We have photographs of all of them in the gallery.

And finally... I've spent a large part of the afternoon watching as three sessions were recorded for future editions of Another Country with Ricky Ross. All sounded fantastic and will air over the next few weeks.


  • Comment number 1.

    Can you explain why Good Morning Scotland has been losing listeners over the last year or so? Do you think it might have anything to do with the quality of the programme and its presenters? In fact how are presenters, I hesitate to say journalists because I don't think they are, are they? - how are the presenters selected? This programme involves much interviewing of political figures but unless Isabel Fraser is on the standard is lamentably low.

    You could just tell me to switch off. I have done for several months now but someone in the house has been turning it on given the lack of Scottish coverage elsewhere on the radio and I have been dismayed to discover that nothing has improved.

    It is odd that the lunch-time and Newsdrive don't suffer to the same extent. If the people making decisions at Radio Scotland think GMS is good enough - which they clearly do - then it does not say much for them.
