Boghead Ben ,

Brilliant!

Stumbled across this Podcast whilst looking for Scottish broadcasts. Absolutely brilliant.

Lovin’ the music. Will give it a plug on our wee show.

Wulltug ,

Brilliant

Great show and the music quality is superb however the audio quality of the presenter could be better. Still love the music

Houseoflegendspodcast ,

Takes me home

I’m Scottish but currently living abroad. I used to love listening to this back home and now love it even more for keeping me connected to the Scottish trad scene. Simon is endlessly and infectiously enthusiastic and always picks great tunes.
