Folkal Point reaches 500th edition

19th Aug 2021

This week’s FOLKAL POINT, produced and presented by Colin MacDonald, is the 500th programme in the series and is also the last two-hour programme.

Folkal Point is on Paisley FM 107.5 at 11pm until 1am this evening, Thursday 19 August 2021.

Colin says: “We made it to 500 – from next week Folkal Point’s a svelte hour-long package – more than can be said for me…plus you’ll have first-ever edition of WHAT HAVE THEY DONE? That will be a programme on covers of songs.”

Colin explains what the Folkal Point is all about: “It is musical alternatives sans frontieres from folk to rock with myriad cute other stuff slipped in along the way – offers innovative artistry to discerning listeners around the world. 

An innovative radio programme’s stripped-down format, quixotic, informed, an unbiased spotlight on originality and creativity, steadfastly spurns here-today-gone-tomorrow fads, and just as resolutely ignores trivia.”

More than four decades since first airing on nascent Radio Clyde 261m is still curated and presented globally by its self-effacing Scottish creator.

From Thursday 26 August 2021, Folkal Point airs on Paisley FM 107.5 (and on DAB radio across Glasgow) at 11.00pm until 12 midnight.  Listen Again using the tab on the home page of this website.
