Andy spent his teenage years growing up in Ayrshire in the heart of Burn’s Country, where he developed his love of Scottish music and history.

Andy is a renown Burn’s lover, growing up in the Ayrshire farming community in the footsteps of Robert Burns, he’s acknowledged as being well-read on the life and works of the bard. Andy annually hosts and performs at Burn’s suppers across the country.

He compares at many functions all over the north and north east of Scotland, including many appearances on the stage of The Eden Court Theatre in Inverness.

John was involved with Moray Firth Radio in Inverness for around 26 years, behind the scenes at first, then progressed to sometimes guest presenting on Scottish music programmes while the regular presenter was on holiday, he then became regular presenter of a “Piping Hot” programme, and for 8 1/2 years co-presented a three hour weekly programme of Scottish music and song, “All Scottish” John was also involved in Hospital Radio in Inverness for many years.

Sandra is only one of a few female Scottish Music radio presenters in Scotland. Originally from Oban in Argylleshire, Sandra has lived in Nairn in Morayshire for many years. She has known John ”The Prof” for a number of years. Sandra’s involvement with Highland Fling came about when she agreed to do a ”slot” on the Mod, which was being held in Oban. The rest they say…..is history. Sandra loves listening to Scottish Music, as she was brought up in the land of the Gaels. Sandra listens to all the music before hand and researches the artists. Sandra and John have lots of fun and laughter recording and producing the show.
