Mike Ritchie To Present 400th Sunday Show
Written by celtic music radio on March 4, 2023
The award-winning Mike Ritchie On Sunday Show reaches a special moment this weekend (March 5) – it will be Mike’s 400th show.
His first Sunday broadcast was back in August 2014 and since then his two-hour playlists, featuring classic and new Americana, Roots and singer/songwriters plus many interviews, have won him a loyal following.
And twice in three years he topped the influential Americana UK website’s end-of-year readers’ poll for Best Radio Show, most recently in 2020 – most welcome accolades for the station.
Chair of Celtic Music Radio’s Board of Directors, Alex Jenkins, said: “Mike produces and presents a terrific, well-researched programme for a large and growing audience that enjoys his choice of music and his observations. He works hard and it shows.”
Mike said: “It’s pleasing so many folk listen and support the show.
“Musicians, record labels, promoters, agents and PR teams help immensely, so I’m grateful to them. And, of course, my fellow volunteers at Celtic Music Radio are always there for guidance and advice.
“Playing the music I love is a real treat and great fun, but the main thing is I hope listeners enjoy the show every week.”
• The MIKE RITCHIE ON SUNDAY SHOW is on every Sunday between 4 and 6 pm, UK/Scotland time on Celtic Music Radio 95FM / DAB / https://dunooncommunityradio.org/ and www.celticmusicradio.net
