Dawn Jamison

I’ve been a volunteer with the station for a long time now and present the Kickin’ Country Show on Monday’s 8-10 pm. My interest in country music started when I was very young and my parents were playing Glen Campbell, Don Williams, Tammy Wynette, Johnny Cash, etc at home, they had impeccable taste 🤠. On the show you’ll find fab new country and a sprinkling of those oldies, featured albums and artists, gig news, etc.
I love love love doing The Seventies Selection Saturdays between 2-4pm … it does what it says on the tin , wall to wall 70’s hits !
I’m a born and bred Irvinite, went to Ravenspark Academy and was Marymass Queen in 1978 and still live and work in the area today.
