Gellatly signs up to Radio Clyde to present personal A-Z of music

A PERSONALl A-Z of rock and pop music is to be broadcast over the summer by one of Scotland’s top music broadcasters.

Jim Gellatly is joining Radio Clyde to present the show – on Saturdays, from 2pm – while the station’s normal programming, based around the Scottish football season, is on vacation. As he works through the alphabet, he will be sharing his own personal recollections, including¬†interviewing Robbie Williams at five in the morning after he left Take That for a solo career and forgetting to hit the record button when speaking to Blur.

Says Jim: “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.”

Dundee-born Gellatly began his radio career at Inverness station, Moray Firth Radio, before moving onto Northsound 1 followed by Beat 106, XFM and BBC Radio Scotland. He produces and hosts a weekly¬†podcast, ‘Jim Gellatly’s New Music’ and, two years ago, won the prestigious ‘John Peel Award for Contribution to Music Radio’.
