Season 2 Episode 3: Haggis

By Craig Thorburn - February 05, 2019

Here's Season 2 Episode 3 or 'The Haggis Episode'



Not much in the way of new music this week, but we did talk about The Scottish Bard - Rabbie Burns!

Burns Supper

A Burns Supper is held to celebrate the life and works of Rabbie (Robert) Burns – a famous poet from Scotland. He wrote lots of famous poems including ‘To a Mouse’, from which the title of ‘Of Mice and Men’ is taken. Each year people around the world (but especially in Scotland) celebrate his life and work. Usually this happens on the 25th of January, but Burns Suppers can be held at any time of the year.  I played some of Burns' work on the show today and also recited the 'Address To The Haggis!'  Listen in to hear more (around the one hour mark)
