This article explores on the careers of the first three musical stars of television in Scotland: Jimmy Shand, Andy Stewart and Kenneth McKellar. With reference to the shows with which they were most closely associated, The Kilt Is My Delight, The White Heather Club and A Song for Everyone, it investigates popular music on television from Scotland during its formative years, highlighting the geographic and political issues that made this distinct in a wider context. Drawing on a range of archival sources, it argues the importance of these acts and shows them both as a counterpoint to existing accounts of popular music on early television and in the wider context of the music and entertainment industries.
