Thanks to Ian Forshaw's labours, anyone with a fairly modern computer and some

patience can make audio MP3 recordings of the articles listed here, a most
wonderful way of releasing these resources to anyone who may be blind or visually
handicapped and too for anyone on the move and otherwise be 'too busy' to read
these articles online at home.

THOUGH FEW PEOPLE PROBABLY KNOW
In the very first, April 1977-published, "Kintyre Magazine", A. I. B. Stewart,

around the many and variously available "text-to-speech (TTS)" programs, both

This is the final online magazine which will contain articles, apart from the second For various reasons: pressure of work, losing heart, time constraints etc., I will be
and final part of 'By Hill and Shore' by Angus Martin, from the hard-copy posting a final issue in December. I will try to keep up the 'Wee Drams Page' and
magazine. I have taken this step after much thought and, until a decision is the 'Surnames' and Searchers' Archive' - I do still have some material which
forthcoming from 'The Antiquarian Society', so the situation shall remain. requires scanning and, in slow time, I will try to get that done and posted, it may
Ian Forshaw take some time - so watch this space.
