  • Hilarious songs and sketches from "failed crofter" Colin Campbell. His wry look at modern life as seen through the eyes of the Highlanders is as perceptive as ever. With excellent regional dialects for the local radio sketches, this is a must-buy album.

    Colin Campbell was born in Wick but he moved at an early age to the Black Isle and was brought up in Cromarty. In the early 1940's his father kept the Commercial Hotel in Halkirk.
    In 1962 Colin came to farm in Morayshire and now works his own farm at Easter Bauds, near Fochabers. He began entertaining local audiences with his one-man show based on various imaginary local radio stations and the characters who broadcast from them.
