Stephen Kingsbury and Melatonin
A number of listeners have been asking about the drug Melatonin which was mentioned in the magazine some time ago. This is a pill that helps many blind people with sleep problems. We had a tremendous response the first time
we mentioned it. Stephen Kingsbury repeats the details. The drug is not available in the UK on the NHS, so please check with your Doctor that it is safe to take as it may have a reaction to other medication you may be taking.
Clydebank Exhibition of Clyde Built Ships
Derek Young visits this exhibition in Clydebank Town Hall which runs through until October. It tells the story of the many famous ships built in the Clyde Shipyards.
Following on from the ships built on the Clyde, we have to mention the contribution made by Jimmy Reid who died last month and was instrumental
in organising the famous ’work in’ at Upper Clyde Shipbuilders. Jimmy came into the Playback Studio in 1983 to talk to Hugh Gray.
Recently Derek travelled to the north east of Scotland to record some programmes for Playback, the first is from Deans Shortbread factory in Huntly.
Confidance, formerly known as Blind Dance, started back in the 80’s. They continue to be a very successful group and are looking for some new members.
