Richard and Janet Bartholomew
Hello From Richard And Janet Bartholomew
Thanks for dropping by our page where we'll tell you a little bit about ourselves as well as our shows.
So, Who Are We?
Well, we're a couple of very ordinary people living on the east coast of Scotland who, for our sins, work during the day (Janet as a proof-reader and Richard as a database administrator) and, by night, turn our attention to internet radio! We both love reading - although find little time for it these days - and are keen armchair sports fans. Family is also important to us and we have a young grandson who we see as much as possible.
When we first started on the station, we only intended to present one show a week but, surprisingly, this mushroomed!
Diluted Scotch - Monday at 3 PM EST
This was our first show and has undergone a few character changes since we began. It runs for two hours each week and is aimed at providing you with some relaxing music and chat at the end of the first, sometimes stressful, working day of the week. All types of music will find their way into the show at some point but we aim to feature stage and screen, the odd crooner and some memorable duets, too.
Double Top 10 - Sunday At 6 AM EST With Janet
In this show, I feature both the UK and US charts for the current week from a bygone year. Unfortunately, given the nature of the show, there isn't much scope for requests during it but I will be delighted to receive any suggestions for a chart for a future programme.
All The Folk That Fits - Tuesday at 6 am EST with Richard
Most people have their own idea of what folk music is and I am no exception! The emphasis of the show is on celtic folk but this is by no means a barrier for other types. The show is pre-recorded so, unfortunately, I shan't be able to react to comments or requests on air but I'd be delighted to hear from you all the same and either mention you in a future show or, even, play that request you have for an old folkie you hadn't heard in years!
