1 A Falkirk man, do you follow the Bairns?
Not in person but I always watch for their score (along with the Rose and the BU) on a Saturday.

Reading. Can’t beat Iain Rankin for his Rebus series.
3 A keen climber, how many Munros have you climbed?
Not as many as I should have but I’m working on it.
4 Any particular mountains that are still on your list?
The Skye Cullin - they’re a bit special and I must tick them of before old(er) age sets in!

Emmylou Harris and an obscure American singer, John Stewart. Any readers heard of him? Recently discovered The Black Keys, grungy blues rock with 70s poppy overtones.
