Born To Be Wide is pleased to announce the participation of Stuart Barrie, Capital FM Scotland programme controller, to the radio seminar, which takes place at Edinburgh’s Electric Circus on Thursday [3 November].
He will join the BBC’s Vic Galloway, Clyde’s Jim Gellatly, plugger Grant Crain and the producer of Radio Scotland’s Iain Anderson show, Stewart Cruickshank.
“I am delighted that Stuart is able to take part,” says Born To Be Wide co-organiser, Olaf Furniss. “His extensive experience in commercial radio will provide an invaluable insight into how the sector works, and he is the perfect complement to the other panellists.”
The seminar will examine how programming decisions are made, which shows support new talent and how best to approach programmers, producers and DJs.
Several panel participants will remain to meet guests and to DJ with music selected from Edinburgh’s Oxfam Record Shop. Everything played will be available to buy, with the proceeds going to the charity.
Seminar tickets are very limited and due to considerable advance sales so far, organisers recommend buying in advance to avoid disappointment. For details visit www.borntobewide.co.uk
