In the meantime she will be selecting some of her favourite programmes for you to listen again to  in her regular Saturday  ACF slot

Frances or Frlly (The Gaelic Singer ) as she is generally known sings for pleasure, specialising in Gaelic Song and taking part in the Senior Solo Competitions in the Scottish Mod.
Frlly is a co/producer and presenter of  two programmes on Dunoon Community Radio Thursday evenings ALL THINGS MOD-THE SAGA CONTINUES and Saturday afternoon with  ARGYLLCOUNTRY FOLK

Frlly- sings in Gaelic as well

Saturday’s ARGYLLCOUNTRYFOLK Programme  is not a million miles away from Thursday’s programme “All Things Mod –The Saga Continues”.

Traditional Scottish Music has always been very popular with listeners of Dunoon Community Radio hence the success of the weekly Thursday programmes which features Gaelic traditional song, music and the spoken word with popular presenters Mary, Jenifer and Frlly.

Frlly now takes us to the traditional music and song of Scottish Folk Music from long before the Folk Revival of the sixties to the present day folk with the emerging 21st century, traditional and forward looking folk music.

From Classic folk from a time when you called it a vinyl record to the latest artist from the yearly Folk Awards  and the Scottish Traditional Music Awards to the latest  in new releases  and  re-issues  from birnhamCD with weekly reviews of the best sellers from All Celtic Music .

Frlly will also keep you informed not only of local concerts and folk events but what’s happening  across the “Watter” including the  famous”Live at the Star Club”  in Glasgow
