    I was born and raised in the beautiful town of Gourock on the banks of the River Clyde on the west coast of Bonnie Scotland. Since coming to Canada in 1978, I have been involved in just about every aspect of this business we call music, from producing concerts and recording to writing and performing my own songs.

    But of course, my favorite place to be in the whole wee, wondrous world is in the studio at the Mighty CKUA on Friday evenings for The Celtic Show. Like so many of the programs on CKUA, what you play is who you are. I was greatly honoured to be invited to be part of the CKUA Radio Network in 1996 as the host and producer of The Celtic Show. The passion, the culture and the soul of the music are the heart of what we do.

    It’s a great honour to come to CKUA and play the music that I love for you. And it’s an absolute pleasure to be part of the family that we call CKUA. You just can’t top that. This isn’t just a radio station. It’s a way of life!
