Oh Dougray... I Canna Hear Ye, Lad!

On this, Robert Burns' birthday...I BEG you UKers and Irish to listen to this. I can only imagine how fantastic it is. Why must I imagine? Because I am in the US and I get an error that says "not available in your area" when I try to listen! I'm sure you guys over there willna find it as exciting as I would because you get to hear this accent on a daily basis. LOL But still. He's reading Burns. Le sigh...

Just checked the URL for the Scott interview and it links perfectly. However, the viewer must endure a brief commercial prior the interview!

Oh Carla forgive me because I hadn't even tried yours yet. That was lovely. Thank you. Dougray Scott melts my butter. That's the only way I can describe it. He's the most suave Scotsman on the planet. See MI2 for proof. He uses his own accent. Le sigh.

Carla AAAACCKK! I tried it again and it says the video you have requested is not available. Also put in DRS reading Robert Burns..still no video. How did you get it Carol?

mymacintyre said...

Has anyone heard of The Red Hot Chilli Pipers? They sing O' Flower of Scotland and it's wonderful! Though, I'm sure, not in the class of Dougray Scott!
