Galloway pulls commercials for wind-up CD

Presenter Robin Galloway has dropped all crank call spots and pulled on-air commercials for this years CD, possibly indefinitely, after recent events.

Writing for an upcoming edition of’s eRADIO newsletter, Robin says: “The way I feel right now, I may not resume them at all, which would be strange, having done literally thousands over the years with little or no complaint.”

Before the news of the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha, the Bauer Media presenter said he was “a tad envious” of the global media coverage the two gleaned from their win up call, even though he would not have made such a call personally.

“Then came the devastating news that a human being had taken her own life as a result of what was supposed to be a light hearted prank, albeit in poor taste. The whole sorry affair has left me shattered,” he says.

Robin has sold more than 100,000 phone prank CD’s and has been awarded five Gold Discs by The Scottish Music Industry Association for CD sales. He hosts the afternoon drive show on Clyde 1 and a networked Sunday show on Bauer’s FM stations in Scotland.
