About the Show

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.
