Willie McCallum is the special guest on this week’s episode of The Piping Show. John Mulhearn interviews Willie and asks for his thoughts on the big competitions in Oban, Inverness and at Blair Castle. Willie talks about his family connections with these competitions, what they mean to him, what motivates him, and how he goes about preparing for them in his practice routines.

Also in this episode we have a weekly news round-up and Dr Andrew Bova’s historical artefact section which has connections to royalty and Angus MacKay.
