. . . called alex @ CBC Hfx and got direct # for Bernie (still sr Prod) and Paul . . . I called Liz to ask if she'd do an interviews as weaver of tartan on Highlands Radio (she said yes) . . . Then I called and left message for Melissa @ CHSR . . . Liz has just been asked to demo on the Games site—weaving, drop spindle, something—very last minute but . . .

James Doohan, "Scotty" of Star Trek fame, has died.

1 mess, 1 pm: Liz N_ @ Ideas called. Bernie says it's fine to broadcast "Water of Life" & "Guiness is Good for You". Ceilidh. I'm now providing 5½ straight hours of Friday's HR from Scotch Music thru Highland APB, "The Robbie Burns Story" and The Occasionals Trad Ceilidh. Plus Tris or Melissa did get Ryan to do a "Celtic Soundtrack" as I suggested. Plus some of the retro coverage is from my recording onsite, plus getting Amber on air was my doing . . . this year Highland Radio is throwing Lyon to the boys w/ the heavy events—he should be a good person for them.

A pair of Irish wolfhounds . . . Off Square open air concert by Solstice with Matt Carter percussion—djembe, bodran; harp and keys; Krista on fiddle; someone I don't recognize under his ballcap; Helen on whistle also sings; accordion [Jane] . . .
