00:00Monday

00:00Monday

Northern Skies is an eclectic mix from a number of music genres that span many decades but its pretty much indie chilled beats to match the mood of the dark skies above Shetland.  The winter brings almost eternal darkness whilst the summer sees almost daylight.  The music you here whilst the community is asleep is selected based on the time of year and the weather.

Folkal Point

22:00Thursday

22:00Thursday

FOLKAL POINT – musical alternatives sans frontieres from folk to rock with myriad cute other stuff slipped in along the way – offers innovative artistry to discerning listeners around the world. This innovative radio programme’s stripped-down format, quixotic, informed, an unbiased spotlight on originality and creativity, steadfastly spurns here-today-gone-tomorrow fads, and just as resolutely ignores trivia. More than four decades since first airing on nascent Radio Clyde, this well-regarded, now widely syndicated two-hour weekly programme is still curated and presented globally by its self-effacing Scottish creator. Always thoughtful, often quirky, sometimes provocative, enigmatic even, yet always fiercely resistant to barriers and contrived labels, Folkal Point remains laid back, arguably a tad eccentric but above all still a joyously maverick celebration for all on this fragile blue planet who value the glorious confluence of meaningful words and music in their lives.

10:00Sunday

10:00Sunday

On The Weekend, is an eclectic mix of adult contemporary music from singers-songwriters with spice tracks of Cajun, Country, Roots Music, Folk, Blues, Rock ‘n’ Roll & Scottish music. Mike Marwick was born in Aberdeen in 1947 but has spent virtually his whole life in Edinburgh as a full time lawyer however he has recently retired. His interest in radio grew during the offshore ‘pirate’ era of the 1960s when radio station studios and transmitters were based on ships three miles or more off the coast to avoid territorial limits and the authorities. Stations like Radio Scotland on 242m and Radio Caroline on 259m inspired him to get involved.
