Scots Radio - The Journey So Far

Scots Radio - The Journey So Far
-

Elphinstone Institute Public Lecture Series

Join Frieda Morrison as she takes us on a journey that started four years ago with her producing and presenting the monthly internet magazine programme, ‘Scots Radio’ that celebrates the culture and language of Scotland in ‘a it’s soons and tunes’.

Writer and poet James Robertson described Scots Radio thus:

'Crucially, while the Scots language is celebrated and enjoyed, it is seldom the main topic under discussion: in other words the language is used in the way it IS used the length and breadth of the country, to address and explore all aspects of life. Frieda Morrison and her colleagues give the lie to the notion that Scots in the media is only fit for fitbaw and comedy – although that is not to say that there isn’t plenty of humour in the programmes. Scots Radio continues to be an oral-aural celebration of the Scots tongue and as such is both a delight and a necessity – a rare example of the Scots language being given its rightful place in our media.'

Frieda looks back at events that led to the creation of this highly acclaimed internet Radio programme and dares to glance at the future for Scots in the media.
