Pat Nevin: public made great choice with Scotland’s Greatest Album

Football pundit and indie-loving DJ Pat Nevin  - who was a judge for Scotland’s Greatest Album – has revealed that he was impressed with the public’s selection for the final 12 songs. (See Pat and the panel discuss The Proclaimers in the video above.)

The five-part show managed to cover the 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s, with the panel selecting a shortlist of 15 tracks from each decade. The public then chose three tracks from each, and last night’s final episode revealed their selection.

Pat told us: “I am impressed with the people's choices.”

As a former Scottish international football it was Pat who put forward a Proclaimers favourite onto the shortlist that is treasured by his fellow Hibs fans at Easter Road, so there’s no surprises about what he was happy to see on the list.

He said: “I am most happy Sunshine on Leith got the nod. It is hard to argue with the finished product.”

Though pleased to find out the final 12, the indie-lover is still curious about the breakdown of votes.

Pat explained: “I could pore over all the results for months about all 60 songs, I hope the voting is all released.”

Luckily for Pat, there’s set to be a Hogmanay special of Scotland’s Greatest Album on STV revealing who got the most votes! We can’t wait to find out what sort of debate that causes...
