Joyful, hilarious tales from one of Scotland s best known radio voices.  Theresa Talbot is familiar to many as one of the main voices behind BBC Radio Scotland's Traffic & Travel yet few people know what she looks like.  In this voyage of self-discovery, TT entertains us with us a life-story many will relate to: of trying numerous occupations from bank clerk to Pepsi Challenge girl and how an eavesdropped conversation on the 66 bus led her to career in broadcasting. 

She recalls her trepidation at the prospect of producing Lulu, why she talked non-stop for 15 minutes to Andy Williams and how she couldn't sing for Glen Campbell. 

Along the way, she gives an insider's guide to presenting Traffic & Travel, points out the importance of hairdressers to comedy careers and reveals the heartbreaking, true story behind 'Save The Last Dance For Me', there's a hilarious guide to having a stress-free Christmas.
