A wee walk around the Knab before work








Some snaps from a day so nice it lent magic to every part of Lerwick. Well, most bits. People were in a good mood, everyone was chatty, the coffee at COPE (freshly roasted on the premises) tasted wonderful. It takes about 40 minutes to walk from the BBC Radio Shetland studios down past the amazing Brucefield Stores (proud to be Zetlandic, as opposed to Shetlandic) to the sea, and then up past the pitch-and-putt course ( when is it open?) to the Knab, the rocky promontory that marks one of the entrances to Lerwick's harbour. Then down towards Twageos ("two geos", or rocky inlets) with views of the island of Bressay, and the oldest and most picturesque part of Lerwick, complete with an old boat used as a garage roof.

Back to my little cubby hole in Pitt Lane, and ready for two hours on air...

Hi Tom, new job and time in the car listening to the radio..instead of cd's..u get so bored of your own " burnt " music..that its good to listen to someone else's...and hear the views of others....
Your music taste is eclectic as mines and you have inspired me to not only download some...but to place tyour webpages on my toolbar...kids think i am sad...but at 47 DONT CARE....
Radio is such a fabulous medium...and reassuring, unique, that involvement can be from anywhere..keep up the great vibes..etc..stunning pics.....
