GMB on the BBC

Yesterday we alerted you to a book launch and today we have a radio program we think you should know about. For tomorrow (Sunday 28th April) at 7.45pm on BBC Radio Four you can hear Claire Knight read George Mackay Brown's story 'The Wireless Set'.

This will be the first of three stories to be broadcast over the coming weeks from GMB's second volume of short stories A Time to Keep which has recently been reprinted by Birlinn - the other stories to be broadcast are 'The Five of Spades' and 'The Masked Fisherman'.

As part of the BBC publicity around the series our very own Reader in Residence Alison Miller was asked to write a blog post for the BBC Radio 4 blog, and you can read more about the broadcasts  and Alison's BBC blogging on her Reader in Residence blog.

So tune in tomorrow to hear 'The Wireless Set' and listen out for the opening music which will be "Shapinsay Polka" by Jennifer and Hazel Wrigley, taken from their album Mither O' The Sea. 

It goes without saying of course that copies of both A Time to Keep and Mither O' The Sea are available for loan from Stromness Library.
