May we present 'The Greatest Scottish Playlist' as chosen by us, and fine tuned by you. Following on from our show on 23rd January as part of Scottish Fiction's 2nd birthday show, it was time to announce the 16 tracks chosen by public poll. Once again I was joined by my panel of Raymond Weir, Bobby Motherwell and Carolynne McKendry, and our earnest judges were armed with a veto, meaning at any point they could chop one of the tracks and replace it with a track of their own choosing. Cruel? Yes. Entertaining? YES So join us as we played out the 15 tracks you voted for in our poll, plus the public's choice track, and discuss the finer merits of each inclusion.
