Tom Hamilton shows
Tom’s first experience of live music was in December 1975 seeing Queen at the famous Glasgow Apollo. And from that day it was all downhill. Any money earned went on music of any description.
The habit has continued ever since, leading to a few years promoting touring acts hoping to play in Glasgow. Starting in September 1998 with singer/songwriter Neal Casal.
He has worked with some of his favourite artists like Dave Alvin, Kate Campbell. Martin Simpson, The Handsome Family, Si Khan, Damien Jurado, Show of Hands and various other acts making their Glasgow debut. He went on organised British tours for two of his favourite acts Ramsay Midwood and Chicago rock-a-billy outfit The Riptones.
Tom met Celtic Music Radio while working in The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and joined the team in mid-2010.
Always on the lookout for new and exciting music, he combs the internet and music press to find the best releases.
Tune in to Tom Hamilton with The Heart of Saturday Night, from 8 pm and the Blues Hour from 9 pm.
