This episode features a conversation between Anne MacGregor, Iain Campbell, Jean MacLean and Mabel Canning, who all grew up near Salen.
We talk about so many subjects – where people’s families came from, social activities of the past, village halls gone by, Mabel’s mum – Doctor Flora, the songs of Archie MacLean – also known as Wobbles, the brief presence of a very dark soul, the serial killer, Manuel on the island, superstitions, ghost stories, working lives and so, so much more.
This was such a special episode to record, thank you to Anne, Iain, Jean and Mablel for their time!
Thank you especially to Anne MacGregor for pulling the group together and also to Mull Museum in Tobermory for hosting us in their brilliant library.
Thanks for listening!
