I have been in the online radio industry  for over 20 years or even more. I lived in Howwood road and went to school at Cochrane Castle school then up to Johnstone High In 1982 I founded Johnstone Talking Newspaper for the Blind, which is still going and called Renfrewshire Sound. In 1986 I became a bus driver for Clydeside Scottish and drove the old London routemaster buses. In 1990 I got married to a Corseford lass Andrea, and got a job with the MOD in Oxfordshire where I still live, with my little boy 2 dogs. I started a online station here and was very successful  still going today. I have worked at BBC and Radio Sliverstone also did work for Paisley FM. Johnstone will always have a place in my heart as its my hometown, so when I came up with the idea of starting an online community station for Johnstone, it was a no brainer for me. We now have a team of around 10 hard working volunteers at the station and we are moving forward to get an DAB service for Johnstone very soon. I am on the Alpha Late Breakfast during school terms  10am and you may hear me on other shows threw the week.

My name is Robbie Hanratty. I was born into the heart of Aberdeen and from a young age was immersed in the culture of those who kicked a ball around the streets to those who flocked to the stadiums to see their local team. A sense of freedom yet a sense of belonging as we clapped and cheered. My dad, a lifelong football fan, took me to the games and bought us season tickets. I soon became fascinated and intrigued at the camaraderie and the competition that was the game of football.

John’s Music Adventure

18:00Wednesday

18:00Wednesday

I am married to Violet and have a son James. We live in Johnstone,  I was brought up in Spateston until my early twenties when I got married(33years ago).  I have been a local councillor for the past 18 years.  My past jobs have been in local engineering companies as Fitter/maintenance. One of the things I was extremely proud of was being one of the founding members of the resurgence of the Johnstone Festival which was a fantastic event which brought the whole of Johnstone together. One of things I have noticed since joining Johnstone Sound is the friendliness’ of everyone within the Station.  They are a fantastic group of people. I have a passion and that is music.  Mainly of the rock genre. I love live music and going to all different concerts and gigs. I started my journey with music at an early age when listening to my mum and dad’s and uncles’ music which was vastly different from each other.   (1950/60 music to early prog)  I took this a step further when I went to work for a prog rock band called “Abel Ganz” as a drum technician while still holding down a full time job.  Many a tired day was had after gigs. My own music taste is very wide from classical to country and from metal to punk.  I do have a passion for rock and metal which hopefully will come through in my Friday night Rock Show. So join me on this magical tour of Rock on a Friday night. warm regards John

I was born in Montpellier, south of France in 1985. I’m a professional singer and I’ve been playing around the world with my bands for 17 years. I moved from Paris to Glasgow in 2017 as I’ve always had a passion for the Scottish music scene, and went back to studies to undertake an HND in Music Business in 2018. I graduated in 2020 and went on to do another HND in Advertising & PR to help me develop my music PR project called “L’Ode Rose” which aims to introduce Scottish artists to France, and French artists to Scotland. I started as a radio presenter in September 2019 on the French radio show called “British Connection”, and I also co-host a live radio show on Facebook once a month with the “Trentmix Radio” team based in France. I joined Johnstone Sound in April 2021.

Thursday Night LIVE

20:00Thursday

20:00Thursday

Im married to Angela, Dad to Joshua and I am a sales manager for a consumer electronics company.  I have been in the same industry for all of my working life. I was born in Paisley, then grew up in Spateston – a housing estate in Johnstone – and later moved nearer to the town centre.  Today I still live in the area with my family, socialise locally and consider myself to be a proper Johnstone boy.  A few years back myself and a friend helped to organise some charity events within Johnstone to try and support some local organisation’s, and the project which lasted for four years, was really enjoyable and successful.  Afterwards I felt I wanted to help or be involved in some other way within the community, whether that be with a charity or doing some other form of voluntary work.  I met the Johnstone Sound team and, given my love for music and a previous association with radio, it seemed right to get involved with the station.  I now host the Thursday night live show from 8 – 10 pm and also the Alpha 80s hour at 8pm on Sundays.  It’s all great fun.  We have a great team and set up here at Johnstone Sound and hopefully I can help to spread the word and raise awareness of the station.  You can be involved also and we would love to hear from you.  Best wishes and stay safe.

After some 50 odd years working in construction retirement is on the horizon and although I have a passion for construction my interest and love of radio and music started back in the 60s when off shore radio took off. Prior to the mid 60s the only way to hear popular music was A.M. transmissions from Luxembourg, Saturday night Jukebox Jury or Sunday night Pick of the Pops. Today the choice of listening to music is vast and local community radio is a great way to bring the local folk together. I only found out about Johnstone Sound in March and jumped at the chance to join the team. Looking forward to presenting and sharing a carefully selected mixed bag of music from popular well known classics to great music that’s been tucked away in albums. My other love notwithstanding the my dear wife, is fitness training and Judo. Being totally useless at ball sports, back in the day I found the Press Steel Judo Club in Linwood (the old Chrysler car factory where Asda now stands) back in 1962 and this has stuck with me all these years and I have been coaching Judo locally for the last 40 years.
