Mod Convener Dick Walsh said he was delighted with the turnout and found it very encouraging looking to future events in hand. He thanked all the Mod volunteers who had worked so hard to make this event happen and asked members of the community to consider joining the Dunoon Mod2018 volunteers to ensure that next years Mod is a really a special Dunoon Event, It can be challenging at times but can be very enjoyable and satisfying.

From the initial response on the night it looks as if the support is there for future events with some folk asking when is the next one.

It was announced by Ian Wilson Mod Entertainment Convener with obvious approval from the audience that Gunner Sound will be the headline act of the final Ceilidh at Mod 2018 and for those who may not be able to attend Gunna Sound will be playing as part of the Mod Fringe in Dunoon’s premier live venue “MacClures Bar” repeating their 2012 triumph

 Last night Norman and Jenny Wright came into the John Street Broadcasting Studio to tell listeners why they have quickly organised a Fashion Show to raise urgently needed funds for this worthy cause
As Jenny says, “they desperately want to help and the best way they could was to use the expertise and resource’s that she and Norman have in their professional life then ask customers to contribute by becoming models, then ask Dunoon Community Radio to use their expertise and the talents of its presenters and together orgainise an entertaining evening for the local community that will also raise funds for this very worthy cause   

“In a world where there is so much luxury amid so much suffering, those of us who have, need to share with those who don’t.  There is so much suffering, and the needs are so great, yet every one of us can do something to make a difference.

This is our world, and our global community.  We all share the responsibility for looking after our brothers and sisters in need.” SAMARA LEVY

KATE REID IS BACK IN THE STUDIO WITH HER OWN PROGRAMME—EVERY THURSDAY 3.00PM – 5.00PM —

KATE 1

Welcome back to Kate who after a couple of hours of getting use to the Studio again is raring to go. She has not said much about the actual programme and its content but rest assured it will be a healthy mix of folk, pop, rock and acoustic music and of course good craic

the-midden-2-300x200

Many listeners will remember Kate, the lead singer and main songwriter of the popular “The Midden” from when she presented her own weekly show “Homeward Bound” on CMR95FM and here on DCR97.4FM way back in the beginning, good craic, good music including  tracks from new artist plus the  ’Six Songwriters’ feature every week in the final hour of the show.  

The Midden are Kate, Meggan and Hazel Reid, three singer/songwriter sisters who grew up in Alford in the North East of Scotland. Multi-instrumentalists all three, means that guitar, violin, cello, whistles, bass, piano and sometimes even accordion provide the backdrop for 3 unique voices, interwoven into intricate vocal harmonies. Each sister writes her own songs and together the band has arranged many Scottish traditionals and folk songs. They also play tunes, mainly reels.

The Midden formed officially in 2001 at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival and went on to win Best Newcomer at the Danny Kyle Open Stage in 2002. They turned down a record deal with a leading Scottish folk label in their first year, to go down the DIY route and have brought out 3 successful albums on their own small independent label, Midden Records.

They have played many European festivals including the Bardentreffen in Nuremberg every year since 2004, the Festival Interceltique de Lorient (2002+2003), Het Schots Weekend (2005) and entertained the pipers at the Piping Championships held in Belgium (2004). They have supported many notable folk musicians like Carlos Núñez, Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, Fiddlers’ Bid, Blazin’ Fiddles, The Poozies and Old Blind Dogs and have shared a stage with Brolum, Cantrip and Back of the Moon. They played to a crowd of 25,000 people in George Square at Hogmanay 2004 supporting Snow Patrol and Donnie Munro of Runrig.

Over the last ten years The Midden have played countless folk clubs and festivals across Scotland. Most of their touring has been done in Germany so far, although they have also played in Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Belgium, England and Wales.

They have released 4 studio albums to date with their fourth CD, In The End, being Aa firm favourite here on DCR97.4FM.

Scottish Community Drama Association

SCDA supports the development of Community Drama in Scotland. Over 400,000 attend amateur theatre performances from Shetland to the Borders, in venues that range from village halls, Scout Huts to ruined castles. For people in remote rural areas, it can be the only access to live theatre. 10,000 participate in these shows each year, learning skills of performance, marketing, health and safety, and even just enjoying the social life which our 250 clubs offer to older people, newly single, and childre nunder the age of 18. Our members range from age 5 to 81, and all our events are managed by our network of 400 volunteers in 28 grass roots local committees.

Many of Scotland’s top actors started out in SCDA clubs. Richard Wilson ( Greenock Players); Alan Cumming (Carnoustie Theatre Club) , to name just two.

They are committed to enabling the most disadvantaged groups to take part and are currently working with a Gujarati group to start a drama class and eventually to create their own play in English which reflects their culture.
