Easy Sunday

presented by Al Smart

I’m a retired BT Manager and Road Safety presenter (think speed awareness courses!) who lives in North West Leicestershire. Married, we share our home with our adopted black and white cat. (Yes, he very graciously adopted us). How did I get involved with radio presenting, well, read on……. After a lifelong interest in radio broadcasting, especially those based on ships and abandoned wartime forts, I started as a volunteer presenter, engineer and fundraiser with Carillon Radio (a hospital radio station) in 2007. To record programmes meant a weekly trip to the Loughborough studios, but as I was self employed at the time, it was not always convenient. Coming from an engineering background, I subsequently discovered that I could record programmes from home relatively easily. I started recording programmes from home a year or so later and have carried on ever since. I left Carillon Radio after a couple of years and ventured into the big wide world of internet radio. My main signature programme back then was “Easy Sunday”, and it continues through to today. A wide variety of music from the 1950’s to the present day, together with a number of features to keep you entertained. Hope you like it.

News

Alisdair Connell

Hi I’m Alisdair and I head up the news team at Johnstone Sound bringing you all the latest local and national news. I’ve been involved with the station now for 2 years and love being able to give something back to the local community. I’m also the key representative for Alpha Taxis who are the main sponsor for the station, so I basically act as the go between. I have had a very active involvement within local theatre for many years and I have also played a variety of roles within different television programmes across various channels.

Matt Smith

Originally from West Sussex, I moved up to Scotland in April 2018, and possess a keen interest in radio, television as well as an avid follower of football, having played the sport to a high level. At Johnstone Sound, I’m part of the News Team, where every Saturday and Sunday, I’ll be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest news, both local and national.

Presenter

Liam Christie

I have done sports podcasts and I was on my Facebook feed one day and I seen an advertisement for Johnstone community radio. After getting in touch via email I started training and I've now got my own weekly show. I play anything from classic rock ,Indie and r and b hits to modern songs that maybe no one has heard in a while or at all. I have a varied music taste that I love to share with everyone and hopefully my show makes people laugh or just happy in general. Music is life and can remind you of certain moments whether that would be happy or sad and thats why I have a passion for it.

Presenter

Antony Crawford

I’m Antony Crawford. I’ve been with the station since January 2020. I am currently off air, but will pop up from time to time, keep an eye on the facebook page to see when I’m on. I help with the tech support, production and keeping the station running smoothly. Along with that I also help new presenters from the first contact right the way through to being on air and beyond.

Presenter

Emma Gabarda

I’m Emma, also known as ‘Frenchie’, and I’ve been a professional singer for 18 years. I’m from the south of France but I moved to Glasgow 2017 to study Music Business, then Marketing & Communications. I love discovering new bands and going to local gigs, that’s why I joined Johnstone Sound in April 2021 to host French Connection. It gives me the opportunity to play new music and unsigned bands from France, Scotland and beyond every week. So if you like to discover new music, join the French Connection show every Wednesday from 8pm on Johnstone Sound.

Presenter

Hugh Lindsay

As a teenager back in the 60s I was a fan and listener to the off shore radio stations with their DJs blasting out great music all day every day and I suppose I would have loved to have had go at doing that but never had the time or opportunity. After all these years Johnstone Sound was looking for volunteers and I jumped at the opportunity to go on air. I present the Sunday morning Feel Good Sunday Show 10.00-12.00 with a mix of music from the last 6 decades and a few new releases and album tracks from well known artists not forgetting some jingles from back in the 60s.
