Technical Director of Celtic Music Radio, , an OFCOM licensed community radio station which broadcasts 24x7 on 1530kHz around Glasgow and Central Scotland, and streams via the above url.

The radio station studios are based at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship, promoted in collaboration with the Department of Creative and Aesthetic Studies, at the University of Strathclyde. It has broadcast live and recorded events at the last three Celtic Connections Festivals (January 2005-2008). It now runs full-time with a 24/7 series of music programmes and reviews and previews with arts and cultural discussions.

Celtic Music Radio has a mission to be a strong cultural voice for contemporary and traditional Scottish music, arts and culture, pioneering new frontiers in communication and broadcasting by including people that do not have access to mainstream media.

While Celtic Music Radio focuses primarily on traditional and contemporary Celtic and Scottish-influenced music, our playlists are wide-ranging, encompassing "world music"- traditional and folk music from many countries, blues, and Americana.

The service aims to advance education, in particular by promoting the performance, learning and appreciation of a broad spectrum of Celtic music and cultural activity; to enhance the understanding of this genre of music and be pro-active in the development of the rich heritage of Celtic music and Scottish culture.
