Says ‘Tiger’ of his move to Clyde 2: “It’s been an absolutely incredible few weeks for me and I’m really looking forward to the new show and joining some of my pals like Dean Park and Andy Cameron on Clyde 2. I love the variety of music on the station and my show will allow me to play a few more of my favourite artists like Rod Stewart, Simple Minds, The Beatles and David Bowie.”

Clyde 2 listeners have grown up with the Tiger and share his passion for great music. He’s made a massive and unique contribution to Clyde 1 and we wish him good luck when his adventures continue on Clyde 2.”
