Tom Russell, Scotland’s Godfather of Rock DJ’ing, will be the 2019 event’s compere.

The Arran Rock N Blues Fest is delighted, and not a little honoured, to be able to announce that Tom Russell, Scotland’s Godfather of Rock DJ’ing, will be the 2019 event’s compere.

A well-kent face and well-known voice to gig-going and radio listening rock fans of all era and ages, Tom hosted the successful and long-running Friday Rock Show on Radio Clyde before hosting shows on Rock Radio 96.3, which broadcast across Central Scotland, and Real Radio XS, Manchester.

In 2012 Tom, who in his time has interviewed a veritable who’s who of rock, was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Scottish New Music Awards ceremony.

In 2016 he released his autobiography The Godfather of Rock, providing a behind the scenes look at his life, rock music and radio.

Tom currently hosts his own Rock Show on Rock Sport Radio, Glasgow.
