Broadcaster

    Frankieboy on the AirFrank’s love of Broadcasting goes back to the time when listened to a 50th Anniversary LP from the BBC, highlighting the major highlights from the Corporation’s illustrious history.

    Since then he became hooked on all things broadcast from TV and Radio’s past, the covering of historical events, listing to some of their biggest stars in comedy and drama. That interest heightened even more when started to get involved in various TV programmes, starting as an eleven year old in his primary school choir, performing on the BBC Scotland Show, “Take Five” with Danny Street.

    Five years later, through his previous Ballroom Dancing experience, he began his three year association with the Scotland Latin American Formation Team, who were regulars on the BBC “Come Dancing Programme.”

    During that final year with the team, Frank began cutting his teeth in the Radio Studio with Hospital Radio Paisley, where his brief appearances reading the Horse Racing Results on the Sports programme, helped get him the Job at Butlins. It would take almost twenty years, when the opportunity to return to a studio when he returned to full time study, taking his Broadcasting Experience to a new level, graduating from Reid Kerr College in Paisley with a Higher National Certificate in Radio Broadcasting, achieving merits in almost all of the modules studied.

    Part of his course work involved gaining valuable experience in the College’s Radio Studio which would also be the operation base for community station, Ferguslie Park Radio, where Frank along with his very good friend, Mike McEwan, presented the popular afternoon weekday show, “The Lunchtime Experience,” during the Station’s Restricted Service Broadcasts.

    Along with his journalistic experience, Frank continued to build on his radio experience, with commercial radio stations as a reporter. And eventually he was back in front of the camera presenting the weekly evening magazine programme “Lanarkshire Live,” for community station Thistle TV. Frank has since returned to Radio, producing and presenting shows, initially with Mike for internet Radio Station, Hit Music Radio, eventually moving on to solo projects for Costa Blanca Radio Stations, Radio Nova and currently with More Music Radio.

    Always keen to develop new ideas, Frank is also combining his broadcasting skills with his creative writing, producing audio versions of his Butlins Trilogy and plans to develop more.

    Once he writes the stories first. As for doing more stuff in front of the camera – watch this space!.
