WHATS ON WHEN?

Could you be what Chief Radio is looking for?

We are looking for very committed, passionate and experienced presenters to come on board and bring enthusiasm, energy and a great show.  We ask that you have suitable equipment and software and know how to use it to get the best from it.  You must have your own legally bought music for your shows.  We need to hear at least 30 minutes of you presenting your show and detail your show and radio experience.  We require your show to be recorded for Chief Radio and not a show that has aired on any other station.  We will supply you with jingles, adverts and voiceovers to tailor you show specifically to Chief Radio.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Got an idea for a show?

What do you want to hear on the radio?  If you have a great idea, why not get in touch and tell us about it? 
 

Chief Radio Shows

Kirsty will do various shows on Chief Radio but every weekday morning she will attempt to wake you up.  She has been a singer, musician, songwriter all her life and worked as a DJ at weddings and clubs for around 5 years.  Her musical taste is pop, acoustic, country and loves a 4 on the floor.  Texas, Clean Bandit, Neil Diamond, Lionel Ritchie, Kasey Musgraves.
Our Rock the Carehomes show is the most popular show so far.  It has nothing but 50s and 60s songs and our aim is to donate as many Alexa speakers as possible to Scottish Carehomes.
Chief's Briefs is where Kirsty talks to a 'Person of interest' with their choices of tunes.

In Scotland, we have an official chart, nobody plays it.  We do on a Sunday afternoon from 15.00.  The songs that Scotland buys to make up it's top 40.

I am the drummer for Sing in the City, Hanley and the Baird, and Steal the Sun and I am the station Manager and DJ for Chief Radio. I think it’s really exciting that Kirsty started Chief Radio and love being involved.

My biggest music influences: Blondie, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder

Programs - Late morning weekday, Scottish artists


Kerry Thomson, Beatz show Monday - Friday 10.00 till Saturday 09.00 till 12.00

I am a musician, designer, huge F1 fan and proud of Scotland. I have been extremely fortunate to work with some really cool ‘A’ list musicians over the years and realise everyone’s just human… some more than others! I’ve played all across the UK and abroad but always love returning to my native country. Being a DJ in a nightclub is very different to radio, but for me music is the soul of life. It touches us all emotionally in one way or another. I’m chilled with a sense of adventure. Follow your heart

I’ve known Chief Kirsty for 8 years now and I am delighted to be a part of the Chief Radio team.  I was brought up on music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s as well as a strong link to the Scottish folk music scene. The first live gig I ever went to was The Corries  I love the folk/rock festival scene having attended many across the years which solidified my liking for artists such as The Saw Doctors, North Sea Gas, Dougie MacLean, Deacon Blue and in more recent times Tidelines. I also took my casual interest in Eurovision to a whole new level in 2008 when I attended 7 live contests 

 


Elaine Dove, Now that's what I call a Chief Radio show. Monday 13.00 - 16.00

Jules moved to Edinburgh two years ago and has recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh. Having spent the last seven years of her life swimming at an international level, she now hopes to pursue a career in music and radio. Although a lover of all genres and artists, funk and disco hold a special place in her heart. Her other interests include making crumble, solo dance parties, her dogs Coda and Maya, and telling people why chicken has no place on a pizza.

Juliette Casini Jive talking Monday 19.00 till 20.30

I work as an air traffic control consultant having been an operational controller for many years. I travel around the world (normally) working on projects at airports to increase their capacity.Musically, I have played the guitar for many years for pleasure but occasionally venturing out to the odd jam night or open mic night in Edinburgh. I have a small home studio and enjoy recording my own music, mainly blues and rock.I also enjoy photography, with an interest in fine art pictures of Edinburgh and Glasgow as well as abstract work.

Kel Kirkland Blues show, Tuesday 20.00 22.00

Lewis Harrower is a MA radio graduate from the University of Sunderland. While there he grew his love of Country, Americana and Folk music through his student radio show The Hoedown. Through this, he gained great knowledge of the genres and had a chance to speak to some of the artists and musicians her played such as Sarah Darling, Ashley Campbell, Ally Bain and Phil Cunningham, Raintown, Joshua Headley, Yola and many more. Something he loves about making radio like this is also getting the chance to play music from up and coming artists, interview them and follow their journey. That's what Lewis hopes to bring to his Chief Radio show.

Volunteering my services has been a special interest and pleasure of mine. Shows for Radio Lollipop at the Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh were well received and brought so much joy to so many young kids. Shows for the local community radio station Castle FM in Leith to help promote local projects and foster/build community spirit. I also have had bookings for special occasions and stints with River FM and Radio Forth amongst the most rewarding in my career

Gordon Hunter Wednesday 70s & Friday 80's 20.00 till 22.00
