Ken Sykora was a jazz guitarist and for over 40 years, a radio broadcaster, working for the BBC and Radio Clyde.
His eclectic broadcasts ranged from presenting live jazz to whole series highlighting different types of music: from guitar, to folk to big band. He created unique programmes that mixed music and facts effortlessly and entertainingly. His final series was the award winning Eater’s Digest, ‘a food programme not just for cooks, but for everyone who eats’.
Ken kept a number of his programmes and some of them will be played here, in addition to his own musical performances, many not heard since they were last broadcast in the 50s.
This radio station is a tribute to Ken's legacy as a broadcaster and a musician.
