career began in the 1970s; I worked with various discotheques in the
North East of Scotland but my ultimate ambition was to work in radio.
There weren't any local radio stations in my area when I was a teenager.
So I recorded audition tapes in my bedroom and sent them off to stations
like BBC Radio One and Radio Luxembourg. They largely consisted of me
warbling into a cheap plastic microphone and playing scratchy records at
the wrong speed. Not surprisingly the tapes met with a total lack of
enthusiasm but I was determined to break into Radio somehow.
radio career began in 1981 with a 12-year spell in Hospital Radio. Since
then Iíve worked for many radio stations across Britain, The Republic of
Ireland and Europe. I currently present a weekend show on Waves Radio in
obviously aware of Radio Seagull during its offshore days in the 1970s
but I first encountered the current incarnation when I acquired an
Internet radio (best purchase Iíve ever made). I loved Seagullís varied
music policy and had to be involved in it.
listen to my show youíll hear musical genres such as Rock, Prog Rock,
Punk, Proto Punk, Psychedelia, Psychobilly, Thrash Metal, Trash Metal,
Country, Alternative Country, Ambient, Dance, Trance, Indie, Folk,
Americana and Post-Modernist Caledonian Fish-Thrash. I made that last
genre up by the way.
