Glasgow, Scotland – Feisty broadcaster Lesley Riddoch is back with a live phone-in at 12noon – on pioneering community station Celtic Music Radio. The former BBC SONY award winning presenter will host one hour phone-ins next week (16-20th February) as part of the voluntary effort behind the station aiming to put Celtic Connections gigs and artists on the map across Glasgow and via the internet, across the world.
Lesley Riddoch said, “This is a bold effort to connect a big cultural event
with a worldwide audience. The station is broadcasting on 106.6 FM in Glasgow
and online at seeglasgow.com so anyone
can listen and email anywhere there’s a computer. I go to so many Celtic
Connections events – wielding a microphone beforehand will be a great way to
warm up! And if we get some argumentative Celtic callers – from Castlemilk or
Calgary — that’s the way I like it!’’
Celtic Music Radio is a community operation with aspirations for a full-time an
Ofcom Community Radio Licence to serve a community-of-interest with a broad mix
of Scottish traditional and contemporary ‘Celtic’ music and culture. Celtic
Music Radio has a studio base in the Exhibition Hall within the Glasgow Royal
Concert Hall and will be on-air 24 hours-a-day until Monday 30 January.
