Sandy Semeonoff worked for BBC Scotland for many years as a music librarian. He has produced country, folk, and world music programmes for BBC Radio Scotland.
He grew up in a house full of classical 78s and LPs, but his passion for seeking out new and exciting styles of traditional music really began when he heard Finbar Furey playing the Irish uillean pipes in Edinburgh folk clubs in the 1960s.
Sandy is also a performer and for several years could be found singing and playing the Cajun music of SW Louisiana in Glasgow pubs.
Sandy presents and produces an eclectic choice of international, mainly acoustic music in his monthly Planet Waves programme on the last Thursday of the month from 1200-2.00pm.
