Alex was born in Johnstone and takes great pride in his community projects. He founded the “Johnstone Talking Newspaper for the blind” back in 1982, Now Renfrewshire Sound, which just celebrated its 45th year of service.
Alongside this project, Alex is also involved in creating radio shows for Johnstone Sound, a community radio station he founded.
The station has a dedicated team and is the only one of its kind serving the community.
Alex Broadcasts from his Shed of Sound, which has a full broadcast studio and is responsible for scheduling radio shows, updating the system and maintaining the website.
Together with the rest of the committee, they are working tirelessly to move the station forward. Alex’s contribution to the community of Johnstone is invaluable.
