Oh………So you thought you would be nosy did you – I see 😉
Welcome to my wee mini bio.
A Johnstone lad through and through growing up “Up the Castle”. I have many fond memories of growing up in our great wee toon, especially the days where you could roam around the Bluebell Woods and the Brandy Burn without the police being called because you were missing for an hour! Changed Days.
I have a very strong passion for music and have been involved in music in some shape or form for the last 27 years. Where that be playing, organising music gigs, promotions, A&R, video production or sound production. I run a Record Label with my business partner and good friend John Kirkpatrick – we aim at promoting young up and coming local (and across the globe thanks to the web) talent and getting their material onto the online retailers such as iTumes, Spotify, Google etc – a not for profit venture also because we believe it’s all about giving back to the community.
Like all of our presenters and station staff, we are volunteers on Johnstone Sound and hold down full time jobs outwith broadcasting and station work so we are very dedicated as a team to make this community project a real success for the people of Johnstone. It is YOUR Radio station so please do get involved – we would love you to join us.
I joined Johnstone Sound at the start of 2019 as a “behind the scenes” guy taking care of admin and promotions. However, I was persuaded to start venturing in to broadcasting on the station by doing some recorded shows in March 2019. I now also look after the Station Funds as well as dealing with any new business sponsors that come on board. We are always looking for new sponsors as that is what keeps our not for profit community station on the air.
Having taken what feels like an age, I have now got my studio setup just right and will be live on Johnstone Sound very soon – so keep tuned in for a fun filled show crammed full of banter, shout outs, requests, competitions and giveaways! Not to be missed 🙂
