This week on Orange Ribbon Wednesday 22 April

In February this year, Hugh returned to his home country, Scotland, for several weeks of catching up with family and friends. While he was there, he recorded two interviews for our Orange Ribbon listeners.

This week Hugh presents the first of those two recorded interviews.

While he was in Edinburgh he interviewed local Scottish guy, Martin.

Martin's story is controversial, and may shock, and is a coming of age story from the sixties. In the interview Martin talks about:

  • Being adopted, and his painstaking search for his birth mother.
  • The sexual practices of young teens, and in his case pre-teens, in Scotland
  • Frequenting bars and drinking alcohol at a young age (Some things have not changed in the past 40 years)
  • What the gay scene (as it was still illegal then) was like in Edinburgh in the 60’s, and how it shaped his future life.

To hear Martin's story in full, tune in to Orange Ribbon on JOY 94.9 on Wednesday, 22nd April, from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.
