His book Songs in the Key of Fife showed yet another dimension to his numerous talents. He has also recently emerged as part of terrific Edinburgh music trio Check Masses.

Great Podcast!

I love this podcast! Knowledgeable women presenters, good to listen to and I really like the music they play. Fabulous way to learn about some new music or just save the podcasts and replay often.

New music podcast...done right.

Informative and entertaining, I love new music when it's both played and discussed, and this is just as it should be. Halina and Phoebe are clearly passionate people, and they communicate their passion fantastically. This podcast will have you instantly Googling for people on their playlist.
