On Monday 21st January, my show was dedicated to music from Scottish artists – it was a lot of fun picking tracks to play, and a real journey into Scottish music as well.
The playlist spanned 4 decades, and covered everything from funk to rock, and everything in between. I’ve actually got enough music to present another two and a half shows with only Scottish artists – and to be fair, we could probably have an entire series of programmes on the topic!
You’ll notice that there are some links between the tracks (e.g. Bobby Gillespie was the drummer in Jesus & Mary Chain, and went on to form Primal Scream etc) – this is a recurring theme on the music scene in Scotland, with some artists appearing in several bands. A great example is Johnny McElhone, possibly best known for being one part of Texas – he was also a prominent member of both Altered Images and Hipsway.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s the tracklist from the show…
Glasvegas – Geraldine
Jesus & Mary Chain – April Skies
Primal Scream – Country Girl
Aneka – Japanese Boy
Capercaillie – Coisich a ruin
Gary Innes – The Caman Man
Runrig – Clash of the Ash
Calvin Harris – Ready for the Weekend
Average White Band – Lets Go Round Again
Mary Kiani – When I Call Your Name
Paolo Nutini – Alloway Grove
Texas – Detroit City
Soup Dragons – I’m Free
HiFi Sean – Testify
Franz Ferdinand – Always Ascending
Annie Lennox – Little Bird
The Shamen – Move Any Mountain
Finey Quaye – Love Gets Sweeter
The Skids – Into The Valley
Big Country – Fields of Fire
Bay City Rollers – Shang-a-lang
Emeli Sande – Next to Me
Darius – Colourblind
Biffy Clyro – Bubbles
Aztec Camera – Somewhere in My Heart
Deacon Blue – Twist & Shout
Orange Juice – Rip it Up
We have been busy over the last couple of months at Nevis HQ.
The studio has a new ceiling and lighting, new acoustic tiles on the walls, new carpet, and to top it all we now have a temperature control system.
This major upgrade was made possible mainly to the Tesco Community Fund (blue tokens in store).

To celebrate the arrival of new and returning students to West Highland College, Nevis Radio has spent the last week broadcasting from the venue itself. We’ve had a great time interacting with the students and the staff, even if most of them were too shy with us to chat with us on air. The college had such a buzz throughout Fresher’s week and we loved finding out about the different courses offered right on our doorstep, from Adventure Sports to Child Care and Cookery. It also gave us a chance to try out remotely controlling the studio from a laptop without anyone back in the studio, which was a great success. We’re itching to use this in different locations around the area now! Check out the pictures below to see what we got up to:
The outside broadcast team (minus Esme who cropped herself out and Jean who wasn’t there that day) AKA Ian, Simon and PARJAY.

A big thanks to the staff at West Highland College for asking us to come and for being such lovely hosts, we hope we helped make Fresher’s week even more special for the students!
On Thursday 10th August, once again we took control of airwaves from the Snowgoose restaurant at the top of Aonach Mhor with another ceilidh. Continue reading “Second Live Ceilidh Session from Aonach Mhor”
The last little while has been particularly frantic in the Nevis Radio studio but we hope our hard work has led to some positive changes. Continue reading “Busy times for Nevis Radio”
As part of Nevis Community Radio Limited’s on-going commitment to becoming more sustainable, a joint project has been undertaken with GFG Alliance, the new owners of the aluminium smelter in Fort William, to relocate one of their four transmission sites .
Along with our shiny new page optimised for phones, tablets and any other internet enabled device we have opted to utilise Mixcloud for our interview content opposed to the restrictions from Soundcloud.
We have been hard at work in the studio building a brand new up-to-date and mobile device friendly website.
This section will allow you to keep up with what we are doing and have been doing at Nevis Radio.
From local events and news to updates about what we’re up to at the station- we aim to keep you in the loop here.
