Like everyone else, coronavirus has affected us significantly and forced us out of our Station at the School. However, since people in isolation will appreciate listening to local programmes, we're hoping that some of us can continue recording.
Our latest playing programme 'Bits n Bytes' is a humorous look-back at technology, which is highly relevant in current, strange times. There's also an enthralling interview with local quine Esther Bruce about her times with Seafield Estate - check them both out.
Our presenters have been meeting virtually in recent times, and Ron and Bosie have the impetus to complete their dementia-inspired nursery rythme session, as well as Pat and Jake the encouragement to produce another music show.
Tam Thomson has joined the fold, and now we eagerly await his first 'Down the Decades' programme, which will interestingly combine well known songs with our local history.
In the meantime, we have been purchasing some more specialist equipment to faciltate our training, thanks to Bucks for Buckie, and are looking to further develop our website following user feedback, such as the new video clip feature on the Home Page, with Ellis' lovely greeting to new listeners.
Hopefully, we can all safely get through the next few months; and, 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 act.
