A big thanks to Andrew Collins for coming in for a chat.

If you'd like to suggest a topic for one or both of the Connect 3 features or an artist for the Two of a Kind, Foreign Language, Half-Time Instrumental or Under the Influence features then feel free.

Remember, if you find yourself in the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy area, do tune in on 1287AM or Channel 3 on the hospital headset to "Where The Action Is", a blend of mod, soul, Motown, girl groups/singers and alternative pop from the late 50s through to the early 70s.

Feel free to leave a comment or indeed a request or two. I can't promise to play it immediately - the shows are usually done live but prepared two or three weeks in advance - but I'll endeavour to play them as soon as I can.

The Cat
