DONALD STRACHAN on WordPress

Welcome to my WordPress site – I hope to develop this as my main web contact where I aim to gather all main aspects of my web presence. I retired from a full-time career in Scottish Secondary Education in 2010 and have been rather surprised by the direction my ‘new’ life has taken. I had expected to be spending much of my time odd-jobbing and enjoying working with wood; in fact it has turned out quite differently as I became deeply involved with community radio. This helped me to extend a life-long interest in music.
At present this site contains a series of ‘diary’ observational posts, reviews of live gigs, and album reviews – along with links to other web locations that I maintain. Shortly after my retirement I secured a position as volunteer presenter on Generate Radio CIC; following the demise of this project as an internet radio, I am now presenting weekly shows on TD1 Radio, Galashiels, and ABC Radio, Alness – both based in Scotland. My principal aim with these is to offer something a little different, for a global community – seeking to provide on-air opportunities for unsigned / indie artists – with now genre constraints.
