And originally it was 031 557 0194. From 1987 until 1990, it was 031 557 4000.

The late Margo Macdonald was the host in the early 1980s before David Johnston took over around 1985.

That's because Cat has left Heart Scotland to pursue other projects, her last show on Heart was on Friday morning.

Some sad news to impart is that Rod Webster, Radio Borders' first MD and who was discussed earlier in this thread, has passed away just a few weeks short of the station's 25th anniversary. :-(

To be fair Craig is only reading what's put in front of him.. The female voice-over they used before was just as annoying.

Good luck to Danny in whatever he chooses to do next. 24 years in radio, 13 at Radio Borders and 11 at MFR, is quite an achievement in today's climate.

Radio Borders didn't take Galloway Sunday as it had a local programme, Golden Sunday, in that slot instead - this also went as a result of the changes.

Myers has got it spot-on. Paddy McGuinness has to tone down his voice and learn the knack of broadcasting on the radio, and the producers start learning to vet Paddy's output. Otherwise this gamble...
