Jim Love (1943 - 2006) was one of the Highlands' most respected journalists. He joined the 'Inverness Courier' in 1988, becoming editor in 2003. He had previously been an Inverness-based reporter with the 'Press and Journal'. One of Jim's passions was jazz music but he also played a major part in the blossoming of the traditional music scene in the Highlands in the 1990s and 2000s.

In this audio extract from the radio programme 'Moray Firth People' Jim talks to Helen MacPherson about his schooldays.

Interviewer: Jim, that was happy days in junior school and you have some more memories about your old headmaster?

Yes, the headmaster of the Central School at that time was the late Kenneth Fraser and I'm a great reader, and some of the authors I'm interested in are out of print so I frequent the second hand bookshop quite a bit. And I was down there last year looking for titles by Eric Linklater who spent many years at Nigg and wrote some classic Scottish novels and I found a couple that I was looking for and took them home and to my amazement, when I opened them up, I discovered that inside them, written on the bookplate - 'This book belongs to' - was the name Kenneth Fraser, and after all these years, gosh what, thirty years, more than thirty years, I recognised the signature. And these books had belonged to my old primary school headmaster and I've now got them on my bookshelves.
