The air honors accordion player Will Starr [2] (1922-1976), a renowned instrumentalist, composer, and radio and TV performer. In addition to traditional Scottish dance music, Starr recorded and performed French musette pieces and classical works. His most famous composition is perhaps his "The Jacqueline Waltz."
