The thirteenth edition of an annual holiday tradition: Rob Weisberg and Katie Gentile (Rob's longtime sidekick, academic, author, open-water swimmer and violinist in the band The Special Pillow and formerly The Mad Scene and Run On) play "radio ping-pong", alternating tracks. This year we're ping-pong'ing Scottish songs - Katie has a thing for the Hebrides, and the big Scottish independence referendum vote is coming up on September 18th!
