Bob Leslie 1-3pm
Newly joined Celtic Music Radio – Bob started singing from the cradle – which annoyed the hell out of the neighbours and puzzled his parents. That last part is a wee exaggeration. Bob’s father, Jack, was from Stromness, in Orkney, and had the typical islander’s love of music, playing piano, accordion and fiddle as well as singing. His mother, Mary, was a professional singer in clubs and theatre and had “a voice like a female Paul Robson” according to her son. Bob has been entertaining audiences for over 40 years.Like most creative musicians, he has continually re-invented himself. His current incarnation is that of a solo performer on the folk and community hall circuit. Initially tending to Americana/Roots Country styles, he is now writing more in accord with the traditional sounds of his musical childhood and singing in Scots for the first time since then!
He finds this “Currrriously liberrrrating!”
3 pm Doghouse Roses
Paul Tasker and Iona Macdonald are going to be chatting with presenter, Mike Ritchie about their plans for the year, plus a look back on 2017 when they toured their third album, Lost Is Not Losing – extensively at home and overseas.One reviewer praised Lost Is Not Losing as an “absorbing concoction with majestic guitar playing and peerless, glorious vocals”.
They played a sold-out House Concert for Celtic Music Radio in August, their only Glasgow gig of the summer.
4pm John Alexander
Glasgow’s own Dustbowl Blues singer/songwriter, the hugely talented, JOHN ALEXANDER is in session at Celtic Music Radio’s Admiral Street studios talking to Mike about his musical plans for 2018 and, of course, his current, top-drawer release, Of These Lands, a former Celtic Music Radio Album of the Week.His launch gig for the album at The Glad Café last year was rated one of the best gigs of the year, his country blues and folk tinged rock going down a treat to a full house. One review praised the record for conjuring up “tales of weather-beaten lives (that) make for engrossing listening
