Ross Macfadyen

The Folk and Roll Radio Show - Sunday 10pm


Ross Macfadyen has produced radio programming for the past 12 years, but has been a confirmed anorak since he was 16.
Ross joined Celtic Music Radio 95FM in 2008 and from 2011 until 2018, he was Music and Programming Director.

As a voluntary position, this role included doing a little bit of everything there is to do at a community radio station. Central to the role was curating a music database of over 20,000 tracks and formulating playlists.
His own musical tastes are eclectic, ranging from Mozart to Motorhead and all in between.

Founded in 2018, The Folk and Roll Radio Show has grown out of the philosophy to play any music, as long as it’s good. A typical quote about Ross’s shows is “You never know what you’re going to get next” (Aileen, Edinburgh).
So, from programme to programme, the sound may be different, with a little bit of Americana, Singer/Songwriter, Traditional and contemporary Scottish and Irish, Country, Pop and Rock.
But rest assured, there will always be plenty of Folk 'n' Roll!

Kevin Rafferty

Tea Time Tracks - Thursday 5pm


With 57 years on this planet. I must over a two hour period have something useful to say, why not listen in and decide for yourself.
I will play almost anything as I rely on you the audience to choose the music - I suggest the theme and you pick the music relating to that theme.
Rock, cover versions, musicals, Scottish, love, disco, the list is endless.
I have an audience that covers the world, from Canada, USA, South Africa, Germany, France, New Zealand and of course Scotland and Penicuik.
It's easy to get in touch either Facebook or Twitter Kevin@Crystal FM,
email or call the studio and speak to me direct on 01968 676386

Bionic Boab

Between the Tracks - Tuesday 10pm & Saturday 8pm


Bob has been involved in Radio for decades. Not only as a keen listener but also behind the microphone. He loves the 1960s when British popular music flourished, nurtured by offshore free radio 'pirate' stations - The Beat Fleet!
As the 1970s saw a resurgence of radio ships in the North Sea, a more diverse choice of music became available to the listener.
Recall the magic when Bob introduces "Between the Tracks", a 60s / 70s mix of music.
