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're ever involved in a non-fatal accident in the Kirkcaldy area, do tune in on 1287AM or Channel 3 on the hospital headsets 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 within a month.

I love reading these very eclectic playlists! I really must suffer a non-fatal injury sometime!

We're not supposed to advertise the fact but apparently, I'm led to believe, the station can be heard in other parts of Fife and someone even phoned the station from the Borders.

It's 1287AM. I'd be interested to know if you can hear us. Obviously my show is the only one worth listening to, even if it is somewhat ramshackle at times!

I'll give that a go.
