Hello! It’s Hamish MacAskill here! Join me for Breakfast every weekday morning from 8am until 10am when I’ll be bringing you great music, the latest weather, traffic and travel to get you ready for the day ahead!

About me….
I was involved with BBC Radio Solway when it started back in the early 80’s, then life changed and I thought no more about Radio until Norie B invited me to a voice test with a community radio station in Irvine. I spent 6 months learning the equipment and the systems and I must have done OK! My first slot was Mid Morning 2 days a week and I spent a year doing that. I then joined an Internet Station broadcasting from Cornwall doing mid Mornings 5 days a week and I spent a great 18 months there!

My First Concert

I remember it well…. it was at the Glasgow Apollo to see Rod Stewart!
I’ve been to a lot of concerts over the last 40 years. I’ve been to Germany and Hyde Park for concerts!

My Favourite Bands

Favourite bands would include Simple Minds and Skipinnish. I like a lot of new artists as well and I have been lucky that a good friend is a music promoter and another friend is a now a recording engineer working with some great artists!
