BBC Scotland studio 3 at Pacific Quay

BBC Scotland studio 3 at Pacific Quay

ANOTHER of these days where we have to try and get (more than) a day’s-worth of work done by 11am before we head off.

Somehow we manage and pull up at BBC Scotland’s Pacific Quay HQ in Glasgow and find our guest parking spot which is as close to the entrance as possible. Once checked in at reception, Tanya meets us and takes us to Studio 3 where engineer Malcolm awaits.

Half an hour later I’m set up, soundchecked and we sat down chatting over coffee. A nice surprise when my cousin Sharon pops in to say hello…for the last year or two we’ve been catching each other briefly at events,so it’s great to catch up and lay some plans for a wee get together soon.

Just after 2pm I’m live on the Janice Forsyth Show…two live songs, a nice wee blether and Janice gives Friday’s EP release a good plug along with the upcoming Scottish launch gigs…she’s a great interviewer and makes things comfortable and easy 🙂

The show’s available on the BBC iPlayer here – I kick off 20 minutes 30 seconds in…

We chat for a while afterwards the say cheerio and drop in for a coffee with our pals Maggi and Jon before heading home.

I’ve pretty much finished the B&B website for Emma and Jamie and they pop by for a run through. They’re happy with it all and I get a few bits of info from them to fill in some blanks.

After dinner I pack up a bunch of online merch orders, make the B&B website live then have a dram before bed. An early eye hospital appointment in Glasgow in the morning and a session for STV’s Live at Five show – goes out at 5pm tomorrow (Tuesday) on terrestrial TV in Glasgow and EdinburghFreeview Channel 8, Sky 117, Virgin 159 and on the STV Player (live and ‘watch again)

Nice to guest on Janice Foryth's show...
