We've now reached October in our look back at BBC Radio Scotland's highlights of 2010 as reported on the BBC Radio Scotland blog.

October was the month when the Government unveiled it's spending review. BBC Radio Scotland held public spending debates across the country and we had blogs about each of them: The North East, The South West, The Highlands and Islands and The Borders.

Also on the subject of news and politics, Derek Bateman began writing us a weekly blog about the subjects covered in his Newsweek Scotland programme.

Shereen had some interesting guests in October, and we published extended interviews with all of them on the blog including Will Hutton and James Ellroy.

Vic Galloway had the Phantom Band in session and Scotland's Music filmed it for the website. On Another Country Ricky's guests included Frazey Ford and Eilen Jewell. Iain Anderson was joined in the studio by Mary Chapin Carpenter after her excellent gig at the Old Fruitmarket.

October saw the launch of Family Legends, a collaboration between BBC Radio Scotland and the Scottish Book Trust to encourage people to write a short story about a family member or experience. BBC Radio Scotland presenters Nick Rougvie and Bill Whiteford shared their stories with us.

The BBC Good Food Show came to Glasgow in October. MacAulay and Co, Brian Taylor and Off the Ball came live from the show, and The Book Cafe pre-recorded their programme too.

The Scotland's Landscape season kicked off with a five-part radio series Walking Through Landscape, Stark Talk returned for a new series and new Beechgove Potting Shed presenter Theresa Talbot introduced herself.

Finally, Head of Radio, Scotland, Jeff Zycinski shared a halloween ghost story with us.
