Mike Ritchie success in national listeners’ poll

Mike Ritchie success in national listeners’ poll

Jan 10, 2017

Celtic Music Radio 95FM is pleased to announce an end- of-year poll success for one its presenters.

 

The Mike Ritchie On Sunday Show secured a runners-up slot – behind the BBC’s legendary Bob Harris, no less – for Best Radio Show in the influential Americana-UK website readers’ vote. http://americana-uk.com/americana-uks-readers-poll-2016-the-results

The website editor commented: “Mike’s show continues to impress.”

Mike’s programme goes out live every Sunday between 4 and 6 pm and features a mix of Americana, alt.country, roots, bluegrass and singer/songwriters.

 

Chairman of the charity-status, Glasgow-based station’s board of directors, Alex Jenkins, said: “It’s great that a community-based station run by volunteers gets recognition in this manner.

“For one of our shows to be voted by the public into a runner-up position to a national broadcaster and a BBC broadcast giant like Bob Harris, is no mean feat.

“Mike works hard to prepare a show that mixes up-to-date releases with many favourites and he introduces new acts as well, including many from Scotland.

“His show is well researched and his knowledge and love of the music he picks to play is clear to the growing numbers of people listening in.

“All of us at Celtic Music Radio are really pleased with the poll result.”

 

Mike said: “It’s terrific that Celtic Music Radio is so highly thought of – I’m surprised but chuffed to get a mention in such noteworthy company.

“I really enjoy going on air and being part of the station’s team. They gave me a chance to broadcast and I’m so pleased they did: they are a terrific bunch who do what they do for the love of the music.”
