Mary McCabe, Veteran Indy Campaigner

Our podcasts are all listed on the dropdown menu at the top of the page.

This is our second podcast recorded on 18th December in the IndyLive Radio studio in Glasgow as part of the IndyLive Daily Show. It was an all women team that morning with Val on the mixing desk and me doing most of the chat with Mary McCabe. In fact it was not only a women’s takeover it was a P4Indy takeover, since we are all three of us involved with P4Indy. LtoR: Mary, Marlene, Val:

Val introduces Mary. We talk about how P4Indy came to be set up in the aftermath of the 2014 referendum and why Mary and I decided to get involved with the group. We talk about what approach Mary thinks works best to persuade more over65s to support independence. We find out about The Warblers entertainment group. All this in just 20 minutes. But Mary stayed on for the rest of the programme and there’s another podcast to come from our chat later on in the programme.

The podcast may take some seconds to load…. patience is a virtue.

Over at IndyLive Radio we always ask our guests if they have any music they’d like played on the programme. Mary asked for Eartha Kitt singing “Santa Baby” and the Proclaimers singing “What Do You Do”. As Mary explained during the podcast, her second choice is particularly relevant now just a few days after the 2019 General Election. The last verse is :

What do you do
When Democracy’s all through
What do you do
When minority means you?
