Smooth Radio hires bookworm

GMG Radio has hired Alex Dickson for a weekend programme on Smooth Radio in Glasgow. Alex Dickson is renowned for his book reviews and the show will combine reviews on the latest releases and interviews with authors along with music during the hour long Sunday morning show.

The show, which starts this Sunday at 8am will be sponsored by Waterstone’s. His first guest will be Christopher Brookmyre who will be talking about his latest book “Attack of the Unsinkable Rubber Ducks”.

With over 30 years experience in the broadcast industry, the former Radio Clyde presenter has interviewed no less than 2,000 authors, ranging from John Mortimer, Jackie Collins, Peter Ustinov, Joanna Trollope and Antony Beaver to Ian Rankin, Fitzroy Maclean, and Val McDermid and James Clavell.

Alex said, “There is a synergy between the printed word and radio. You can’t watch television with a book in your lap but radio lends itself to this kind of relaxation, with the station for company. Smooth Radio’s music, catering as it does for a wide range of tastes, is a perfect setting for my book programming. We’ll fit together well”.

Smooth Radio Programme Director Jay Crawford concluded, “It's wonderful to have someone with Alex's experience joining the team at Smooth Radio. I can't think of anyone with more class and character in Scottish broadcasting”.
