It's a podcast of two halves today.The news that Celtic Connections has been awarded £100,000 from the Scottish Government's Expo Fund to commission eight new pieces of work for the Grit Orchestra sparks off part one.

There's a wee bit of reflection on Angus Robertson's new Progress Scotland venture and lots of the other usual nonsense.
