Happy New Year !

—————————————————————

Radio Show Info and Updates:

Our CD has finally been released, and is flying off the shelves! It’s great value with 25 selections, 78 minutes of music all for $14.99. So if Santa didn’t drop off a copy to you, treat yourself, you won’t be disappointed.

To get a listing of some of the stores carrying the CD, click here.

—————————————————————

Tour Info:

Our tours are now set for this year, beginning with the Panama Canal cruise, leaving on February 1st. This cruise has been sold out for many months.

We still have a little space, but not a lot, on our Mediteranean cruise, leaving on September 23rd. For complete details, please visit the cruise section of this website — see the menu on the left.

For our friends at Great Canadian Holidays, we will be escorting two tours, and both tours will feature a performance of a tattoo.

The first is a 7 day spring tour departing on April 27th, to Virginia Beach. The Virginia International Tattoo is included.

Our 27th Annual tour of Scotland takes place from August 15-28th, highlighted by a performance at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Specifics on both these tours will be on our website soon, and reservations can be made by calling Great Canadian Holidays at
1-800-461-8687.

—————————————————————

Coming up:

January as usual is a busy month.

On January 14th I will be addressing the Haggis at the Bronte Legion In Oakville. Tickets are $12.50 per person, from the legion at 905-827- 4722

On January 21st I will be guesting with the fine young tenor Peter McCutcheon at the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club for a Robert Burns celebration, as part of his concert series.

Dinner, with wine, and concert is $100 per person. Information from 416-260-9500.

On January 28th, I’ll address the haggis at the Milton and District Pipes and Drums annual Burns’ dance at the Thomson Road arena in Milton. It’s a great evening, always sells out, tickets are $20, from P/M Stewart White , 905-854-0411.

—————————————————————

Finally, a big thank you for all your kind words as we reached a broadcasting milestone in October with our 40th anniversary programme.

The show continues to dumbfound the so called experts by again topping the ratings in the fall 2005 survey. More people are listening to “A little Breath of Scotland” on AM 740 on a Sunday afternoon than are listening to any other radio station in Ontario at that time slot.

Thank you all!!!!!!!

Thanks and keep listening,
