Aul’Time Farming Audio CD

Aul’Time Farming with Andy Ross and Pat McDonald

Pat McDonald frontThis programme was recorded at Ladycroft Farm Museum, Archiestown near Aberlour where owner Charlie Spence has gathered together a large collection of farm implements and bothy memorabilia. The Programme was first broadcast on New Years Eve in 1987.   It won the Best Documentary category in the 1988 TRICS awards and has been rebroadcast on several occasions since. Pat McDonald, well known bothy ballad singer and story teller, died from the effect of severe burns on 8th November 1989 and many people asked Moray Firth Radio for a cassette.

This is the recording. It last just under an hour and is split into four sections of approximately 15 minutes. There is a slight overlap for each part so the listener knows they are listening to the next part of the interview. Image of the back of the audio CD.

The Audio CD has the whole interview recording first then the next 4 tracks are the interview divided into 4 sections. See details below.
