The Alex Salmond Show delivers a Burns Special

This week’s Alex Salmond Show broadcasts on the celebratory day of Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns.

Alex recites the first stanza of the bard’s epic poem ‘Tam O’Shanter,’ while Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh interviews songwriter Ryan Joseph Burns, who also performs his own new arrangements of both ‘Ae Fond Kiss’ and ‘A Man’s a Man For A’ That.’

Alex also examines the putative alliance developing between the House of Lords and the Scottish and Welsh parliaments to put a spoke in the wheel of the government’s Brexit Bill. He interviews leading Euroskeptic Sir William Cash MP and, from Scotland and Wales, Tommy Sheppard MP and Liz Saville-Roberts MP.
