For the past portion, we ventured back to August of 2000 for an interview I did with her then-band, Wild Colonials and heard their always-brilliant performance. Angela joined me via phone from her current home in New York to talk about life, music and the vote for Scottish independence.  As a native of Glasgow, Scotland, [...]
