Now Playing Altogether Now The Farm

Tuesday 5th May 2020

What we talked about today:


  • The government announced this morning that people over the age of 70 and those that are obese will be one of the last groups of people to return to normal after the pandemic. Alannah wondered how that would work, if she put on a couple of pounds during lockdown would she get sent home for being a bit too ‘chunky’. Rory thought they would measure it like a fairground, rather than take your height they would measure your width with a cardboard cut out to see if you could fit through it.

The nation’s sweetheart has been put on furlough

  • The guys were outraged this morning that Scottish legend John Mackay has been put on furlough from STV. Rory is in denial and is convinced that it is a publicity stunt. Robin offered John a slot on Pure Radio, not to do the news (as we don’t do news) but for a wee Saturday night disco shift. Let us know if you are interested John.

The things Scotland is LOVING about lockdown

  • Everyone is talking about what they are missing during lockdown, so the guys thought it would be a good idea to cheer everyone up and talk about the little benefits of lockdown. Have a look below to see what Scotland is loving about being stuck inside.
