To celebrate St. Andrew’s Day in Scotland this week’s Where The Action Is takes on a Jocknroll theme. We’ll have the usual sporran of tunes from Scottish acts of the late 50s through to the early 70s, as well as our regular features. We’ll play a round of the Connect 3 puzzle (can you guess the link between the three Scottish tracks?), the Half-Time Instrumental, a Foreign Language track (which country will we visit this week?), the Under the Influence choice and this week’s Two of a Kind. There will be no Birthday or Death Disco tracks this week.
