Celebrating 50 years of Radio North

An Angus radio stalwart’s 50 years in the business was marked during a visit by the local MP.

Radio North Angus DJ Malcolm Finlayson has been broadcasting for 50 years and his contribution to independent radio was highlighted by Angus MP Kirstene Hair on a visit to Arbroath Infirmary.

Mr Finlayson’s presenting career began on May 29 1969 and he started the hospital station in 1979 with Ian Clark.

Ms Hair said:

“Radio North Angus is a highly organised, 24/7 station run by around 40 brilliant volunteers.

“Full training is provided, and the station has served as the starting point for many presenting careers since 1979.

“Malcolm has seen the station thrive on his watch, building from closed-circuit transmission to digital service over the years.

“Although the business is changing, there are still lots of opportunities for people of all ages. Radio North Angus is an excellent example of selfless people serving our local community.

RNA is currently seeking new volunteers for radio programming.
