Fiona’s Scottish Artist Playlist

Scottish Artists Playlist – Monday 21st January 2019

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

Studio Refurb

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).

If you selected us as your charity – THANK YOU

Fresher’s broadcast from West Highland College

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!
