Saturdays 17:00 - 19:00
Hi Folks ,
I’m one of the older presenters at Nevis Radio , ( age that is, not seniority ) that’s why I play music from the 50’s 60’s & 70’s , that’s my comfort zone , let me tell you how I arrived at Nevis Radio. I arrived in Fort William in the early 80’s, driving trains , (diesel and steam ) for a living , from Fort William To Mallaig and Glasgow .
In 1991 my contract with Scot rail came to an end , and I went out driving lorry and vans (still in transport notice) This lasted till 1999 when after driving over 90,000 miles a year , for 8 years , enough was enough, and luckily Obtained employment up in Glen Nevis , working regular days , and sleeping in my own bed at night instead of Bunk beds in lorries , Home everyday meant I could listen to Nevis Radio on a regular basis. After taking part in Many competition on Nevis Radio with not much luck I hasten to add .... It was while taking part in one of Billy Wards Competitions that I was asked , why not think about becoming a member of the Nevis Radio team!
This put the thought in my mind , I contacted Mr. David Ogg the station manager and was invited to call in the Studio to see how things were done .. That was it I was hooked and was looking forward to becoming one of the presenters , after the initial training with David and ‘Big’ John Weller , I was successful in obtaining my own show on Saturdays ....
As I said at the beginning I specialise in music from the 50’s 60’s & 70’s and if that’s your type of music , why not Join me on Saturday evenings from 5pm till 7pm for a journey down memory lane...
You can also send me requests for music from these years , just give me a call on 01397 706100 , or text , type in Nevis type your song request and message , ( don’t forget your name ) and send that to 82055 .
