Tomorrow, Bruce Watson will be on BBC Radio Scotland in the final episode of the series “My Life In Five Songs”.
The programme will be broadcast at 14.05 (on Thursday 28th February) with a repeat early on Sunday morning 3rd March (at 06.05).
BBC Radio Scotland broadcasts on 92-95FM, DAB, live on the web (www.bbc.co.uk/radioscotland), and the programme will also be on the iPlayer for 7 days after transmission.
“My Life in Five Songs” is presented by the well-known and respected musician Phil Cunningham (www.philcunningham.com). In the programme Phil invites his guests to pick and talk about five songs or pieces of music that are special to them.
It could be the first record they bought; the music that influenced their choice of career; a song that reminds them of home; a song that their parents played that always reminds them of childhood; a track they put on when trying to unwind; the latest song that has stopped them in their tracks; the first record they saved their pocket money up to buy; the favourite song of someone special; a song they witnessed being played at the best gig they ever attended….the possibilities are endless, but it results in five songs that are really special to the guest.
With Phil’s inquisitive nature and sense of fun, the listener gets a unique insight into the life of each guest and hear some of the music that’s important to them.
We could list the songs that Bruce has picked, or the inquisitive amongst you may search the internet for clues or information on what songs Bruce has chosen – but we think half the enjoyment is in the suspense then surprise on hearing the choices as they are aired.
We will say that as well as talking about the songs he has chosen as his “Life in Five Songs”, Bruce also tells Phil Cunningham, amongst other things, about his musical career with Big Country, talks about the first guitar he bought, and touring in support of The Rolling Stones. He also chats about Big Country touring again, with his son Jamie, Mike Peters, Derek Forbes and Mark Brzezicki.
