Last week of broadcasting before I have four weeks off, and it's a humdinger: Tom's Folding Tour (why did I suggest this?) involves five outside broadcasts, using satellite, with live music and other guests.
Thing is, I will be travelling by folding bike (the Downtube FS IX, see below) train, bus, foot and, quite possibly, hovercraft (there's an experimental hovercraft service starting next week I might be able to use. It's uh, complicated. But my carbon footprint will be low! Or small. As for the satellite van...let's not mention that.
If you fancy coming along to any of the gigs, that would be splendid. The more the merrier. Here are the dates, places and musical guests:
Monday (1400-1600) North Berwick, the Seabird Centre, with Dropkick
Tuesday, St Andrews, Church Square, with James Yorkston
Wednesday, Stonehaven, Market Square, with Esther O'Connor
Thursday, Banff, St Mary's car park, with Richard MacIntyre (ex Stereoglo)
Friday, Nairn, The Links, with The Galipaygos.
