Just got back from a week in the Cairngorms. No FM reception except in the towns and no DAB. Anyone know what they do for listening round there for when I go again?

There's still quite a few wind up gramophones and Jimmy Shand records to be heard I believe Laughing

Once when I was in Scotland for New Year many years ago I heard a very interesting punk rendition of that classic track 'Donald Where's ye Trousers' Shocked

You might hear a bagpipe or two of course - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3b573x7iPw
