Rab Cairns shows
Hi, I’m Rab Cairns, Presenter of Rab’s Late Night Mix. You Can hear me on River Radio Every Wednesday Night from 10pm for 2 hours of the best mix of music. I’ll be playing anything from the 60s to up to date music. You can get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
How would you describe your show?
I play a wide mixture of music so I’m sure you’ll hear a few tunes you love.
My First Concert?
The Offspring – I remember my Dad and my Stepmum taking me to the SECC in Glasgow when I was a kid.
Am I a morning or night person?
I am definitely a morning person! I usually wake up at around 6am but I like to get to my bed early at night.
What music do you love?
As a DJ I get asked this all the time and I’ve never been able to give a straight answer because I love a bit of everything to be honest, it just depends what mood I’m in but I’ve recently went through a wee country stage and been tuning into Seamus’s Country Show on a Friday evening!
What’s your favourite food?
Yes! Food is my favourite! But really I’m not fussy. I’ll eat just about anything!
Holidays – Home or Abroad?
I used to love going abroad every year. I went to Fuerteventura 5 years in a row and made friends the first year I went so it was always good to look forward to seeing them but I’ve recently taken a love for camping over the last few years so now I would prefer a break at the campfire listening to the waves now.
Prefer dogs or cats?
Definitely dogs, I love them. I had a Rottweiler for 13 years and she was the most soft and gentle dog you would ever meet.
How did I get involved in River Radio?
I’ve known Paul Lucas (River Radios Operations Manager/ Presenter) for a few years now. I’ve spoken to him a few times over the years on the CB Radio and he let me know about the station so I asked the question and the guys said yes and let me loose for a few hours on a Wednesday night!
I Have many interests – CB RADIO, yeah that’s right CB Radio! I’ve been on the CB for about 6 years now. I made a local CB Facebook group and tried to get as many of my friends to get a CB as possible. There were a few of us and we all just kept spreading the word and it started getting busy, then Lockdown hit and WOW new breakers coming on everyday. I recommend everybody gets one!
CAR CLUB – Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved cars and bikes and anything with an engine to be honest. I run a local Car Enthusiasts Club in Greenock. We travel to different shows and events around Scotland.
CAMPING – As I mentioned, I’ve recently took a love for camping. I always said I would never like it but through the pals I made on the CB we all set up a camping trip and I went. It was the best thing I’ve ever done. We were going camping nearly every weekend and I’ve ended up getting a wee camper for a bit more comfort
My Dinner Party Guests?
I know I should probably mention some singers or artists here but I would really love to have a few Glaswegian comedians over for dinner, Kevin Bridges and Gary Faulds for sure!
