Ross Macfadyen has been producing radio programming for the past 12 years.
From 2011 until 2018, he was Music and Programming Director for Celtic Music Radio 95FM, a community station in Glasgow.
As a voluntary position, this role included a 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 using Broadcast Radio’s Myriad Playout system.
Ross was also executive producer for the station’s output from Glasgow's famous Celtic Connections and was instrumental in gaining coverage of other concerts and festivals, such as Perthshire Amber.
His own musical tastes are eclectic, ranging from Mozart to Motorhead and all in between.
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).
