Nikki Lyle shows
I have always loved music, my father was musical and we played the piano and sang in the church choir so enjoyed a wide range of music from pop to classical. We’d go to Dunblane Hydro most Saturday nights enjoying Jimmy McLeod and his band dancing to his music.
When my dad became ill in 2016, I wanted to do a hobby as the children were growing up and something to do with music so I wrote to a few radio stations asking to watch and learn.
Victor from Dunoon Community Radio emailed me back and I went to Dunoon 2016 to get a taste of radio finally getting my own show. I was called Foxy and did a factism show, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
A chance meeting at Dunoon Revival in 2018 with Andy Hood and Paul Lucas from Celtic Music Radio led to me being invited to see Admiral Street and getting my own radio show starting first October 2018 every Monday, Nikki at Noon!
I do live radio shows for both stations, Dunoon on a Thursday lunchtime and during lockdown doing shows live from the farm where I live in Bridge of Weir.
Learning the technical side of radio is tricky but it pushes you and adrenaline rushes through me every time I go on air, it’s my happy place and I know I am so lucky to be broadcasting!
My children are proud of me and tell me some of the tunes I should play. I have made so many friends with the musicians and radio presenters too!
I hope I make people smile and cheer up their day while letting them hear some amazing tunes!
