Thank You All!


All of us at Celtic Music Radio 95FM would like to thank our loyal listeners and supporters for snapping up tickets for our fundraiser gig this month.

The show at The Glad Café in Shawlands on November 26, featuring The Marchtown Prophets – Gillian Frame, Jill Jackson, Findlay Napier and Rab Noakes – sold out in a matter of weeks thanks to CMR fans’ generosity.

We were really surprised at having to post up “sold out” signs so quickly.

It will be an evening of terrific music in the company of some of Scotland’s top musicians and singer/songwriters.

We hope you enjoy the gig and we look forward to seeing you there.

Thank you all.

 “PAISLEY 2021 – Album of The Week 28th Oct 2017

Celtic Music Radio 95FM is getting right behind Paisley’s bid to be UK’s City of Culture in 2021.

From October 28, the station is featuring “Paisley 2021 –The Album” as its album of the week.

The 12-track, double CD has been supported by the Paisley 2021 Culture and Heritage Fund and was developed by Alan McEwan, director at Paisley’s Brick Lane Studios with the idea of local singer/ songwriters writing an original song about Paisley’s past, present or future, in any genre.

The album was launched at show in the Spiegeltent as part of The Spree Festival.

Alan McEwan from Brick Lane Studios said: “I am so pleased that Celtic Music Radio is making it the album of the week, which is great news for the artists as their music will be reaching a wide audience, here and worldwide.

“The album is diverse – we’ve got traditional and folk music, rock and pop and even a world percussion band. The initial feedback has been fantastic.”

“Paisley 2021 –The Album” was produced by Chris Allan and Ally McDonald at Brick Lane Studios and is available to buy for £8 from Feel the Groove Records, The Music Centre and The In-Cube Shop (All Paisley).
