Radio Buckie wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Like so many other aspects of life, coronavirus has affected our operations significantly and, since access to our studio in BCHS is inhibited at present, we are researching the feasiblity of other premises to house our equipment and allow us to keep making recorded programmes. In the meantime, we've managed to put together a great new 'Playlist for Life' of one our area's colourful characters - Dodie Reid, from Buckpool and then Cullen.
We're also recognising that people in isolation will appreciate listening to local programmes that we've made in past. For example, on this Home page, there is Tam T's first 'Down the Decades' programme, which combines well known songs with our local history; plus an informative and interesting heritage interview with Peter Reid on the history of the Portgordon area. There's also a fun solo musical podcast on Covid-19 by Ron Black, and an enthralling interview with local quine Esther Bruce about her times with Seafield Estate - check them all out.
Hopefully, we can all safely get through the next few months as the C-19 vaccine gets rolled out; but, if in the interim you fancy contributing to in some way to Radio Buckie, even if it's just raising awareness, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
