|Title:||Dancing with the Shands|
|Review:||A homely insight into the world of Scottish Dance. 58 minutes in the traditional format shot in the somewhat overcrowded 'Village Hall at Letham' 'Robbie McRadioscotland' as MC is his ever erudite self charming the audience with such phrases as 'been on the go' (when were ever not?) Robbie's contribution to the evening is sadly overlooked on the cover write up!! I usually put this on about 11.30pm to share some Scottish culture with overstaying dinner guests with consistent results. My toes are happily tapping, in bed, by midnight|
