John McKelvie, poet, storyteller, singer, fine Scottish gentleman, generous to a fault, gregarious drinking and eating partner, discusses the connection in Scottish culture between pubs, drinking and poetry. 'If it's good poetry it can stand drinking, if it's bad poetry it needs it!' We hear John's rich musical voice, with perfectly paced and placed rhythm, virtually making love to the microphone. 'Let's Hear It For The Bare Arsed Banker', a sung commentary on the Global Financial Crisis, is a highlight to wait for.
