Listener survey – FM reception


Celtic Music Radio broadcasts on 95FM around Glasgow and surrounding areas, and online. We want to make sure that our FM coverage reaches out to as much of our community as possible. To allow us to plan for the future, we are trying to identify areas where reception is patchy, or could be improved.

We would ask all of our listeners to complete the brief survey on https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Z8HFTT7 – it’ll only take a couple of minutes. It asks a few questions about where you tune in, and what the reception is like. The survey is anonymous – we ask for locations or postcodes, but will not ask for any personal data.

Please take a few minutes to flll in this form – it will be available until Monday 9 July, and the results will really help us  in planning future developments and making our service even better!


Thank you

The Celtic Music Radio volunteer team.

The Humblebums -‘Please sing a Song for us- Transatlantic Anthology – CMR’s Album of The Week 16th June 2018

Please Sing a Song for us : Transatlantic Anthology (CD released 25 May 2018 by Elephant Records) is Celtic Music Radio’s Album of The Week 16th June 2018

Billy & Tam

Billy Connolly founded the group in 1965, along with guitarist Tam Harvey; both had been regulars on the Glasgow folk circuit, and Connolly had previously been playing old-time country music in a group called the Skillet Lickers. The duo quickly became a popular attraction in Glasgow’s folk clubs, particularly as Connolly honed his humorous between-song patter, which became an increasingly large part of their already whimsical act. After a few years of local celebrity, the Humblebums recorded their debut album, First Collection of Merrie Melodies, for the Transatlantic label, employing bassist Ronnie Rae to flesh out their sound; the repertoire was split between traditional folk songs and Connolly –  Gerry Rafferty, who later scored hits with Stealers Wheel and as a solo artist, and Billy Connolly, who left music to become an internationally successful stand-up comedian
