Rip It Up: The Story of Scottish Pop

From Lulu to Annie Lennox. Gerry Rafferty to Frightened Rabbit. The Proclaimers to KT Tunstall. World Cafe visited the National Museum of Scotland in the fall for a wild ride through "Rip It Up: The Story of Scottish Pop." We examine Scotland's role in the birth of indie music, the impact of some of its most famous exports, and we listened to a ton of fun music from Scotland's rich pop canon. Our tour guide is Vic Galloway, a beloved host and DJ for BBC Radio Scotland and veritable encyclopedia of musical knowledge who wrote the book that accompanies this exhibit. Come along as we rip through the museum!
