Christmas special from the Mearns Voices

By Sarah Houston / December 23, 2022

A Christmas Special, by the Mearns Voices, a Mearns Writers podcast, is now available to listen to in The Stonehaven Talking Newspaper, The Spik O The Mearns.

The podcast opens with a specially written seasonal song by David Potter and comprises work by a further nine members of the Mearns Writers. The group was delighted to be asked by Joyce Esson of The Talking Newspaper to contribute writing and recordings for their Christmas issue.  

Mearns Writers have become expert at creating podcasts over the period since lockdowns began, by recording them individually, collecting them centrally and putting them together with links, ably assisted by the technical expertise of member, Gregor McMurtrie.

Alistair Lawrie, founding member of the group said that the writers were delighted to be able to contribute their work to the Stonehaven Talking Newspaper. Alistair himself thoroughly enjoyed doing it and especially wants to thank Joyce for asking the group to be involved in the making of their sixth podcast. He hopes you enjoy listening to it as much as he enjoyed the making of it.
