This episode is a conversation with Jackie Shearer of Dennistoun.
Jackie was brought up in Glasgow and East Kilbride and has had a long and fascinating career in the arts sphere. 
We talk about growing up in East Kilbride, the role of a good 80’s jumble sale, the thriving music scene of the 80’s, how Tom Leonard and Alasdair Gray’s work really connected with her as a young person, then how she stepped into working in the arts. 

We also talk about comparisons between the East End in the past and the present. 

Thank you for listening!
