It’s with a heavy heart we announce the death of our 2015 Services to Broadcasting Inductee Stewart Cruickshank. Stewart was inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame in early 2015 when we hosted a great fun dinner in Glasgow where Stewart invited all Stewart’s pals. Fellow broadcaster Iain Anderson gave a great introduction and then Stewart gave one of his renowned speeches that had everyone laughing. Social media and radio has been buzzing with compliments about Stewart’s amazing career and the difference he made to so many peoples lives. You can read about him below.
ONE morning back in 1980, a 29-year-old rock musician with an honours degree in economics, economic history and – most pertinently – librarianship, turned up at BBC Scotland’s former Queen Margaret Drive headquarters in Glasgow’s West End. Scheduled to spend a trial week as a “gramophone librarian”; Stewart Cruickshank ended up working as a radio producer for the BBC for the best part of 35 years, during which he has done much to heighten the profile of folk and related music on the airwaves.
