Jim Gellatly joins Clyde 1
Scottish broadcaster Jim Gellatly is to host a series of summer specials on Clyde 1.
As the Superscoreboard team take a summer break, Jim will go through his A to Z of rock and pop with personal stories and associations for each artist featured.
In 2008, Jim won the ‘John Peel Award for contribution to Music Radio’ and has plenty of stories to share, from interviewing Robbie Williams at 5 in the morning after he left Take That to interviewing Blur and forgetting to record it. The new show starts on May 15th.
Jim says "I may have a reputation for breaking new music, but I've got wide tastes that I think reflect Clyde 1's audience, and I can't wait to come on board. I was the first person in the world to play acts like Biffy Clyro, Amy Macdonald and The Fratellis, but I've a passion for classic pop music, old or new. I'm really excited about sharing my love for the music, and it's a real thrill to be part of such a strong line-up at Clyde 1."
Radio Clyde's Programme Director, Paul Saunders, said "I am delighted that Jim is joining the Clyde 1 team. Jim has a huge passion for all genres of music and will create a unique show on a Saturday afternoon during the summer months."
