Robert has been presenting Nevis Country for about 16 years. He says "I was country when country wasn't cool"
It has always been his favourite musical genre, even as a teenager, but not to the exclusion of all else. Robert also appreciates folk, pop, Scottish and Irish music. Back in the 70's he played in a Mallaig band and has toured with the legendary Fergie MacDonald.
He is a also a successful song writer and several UK country artists have recorded his songs. He was also a keen footballer in his day, playing and managing Mallaig Stars F.C. when they successfully competed in the Lochaber Welfare League. He has been a life long supporter of Rangers F.C.
Courtesy of Nevis Radio he has met and interviewed a veritable galaxy of country stars including Crystal Gayle, Charley Pride, Raymond Froggatt, Mary Duff, Daniel O'Donnell, Billie Jo Spears, Ricky Skaggs etc. His all time favourite singer is Marty Robbins and Robert's collection includes virtually everything Marty Robbins has ever recorded.
