Jim Aird

Jim’s introduction to Community Radio and Black Diamond in particular came from Sharon Colvin who invited him to tell a four minute story on 'Sunday Best'.

He doubted himself whether he would ever be able to become a presenter but gradually Jim found himself in the presenter's chair first of all presenting 'Sunday Best' (Sunday 3pm to 5pm). It is a magazine programme with music drawn from the lighter side, stories, comedy, guests and recipes from Margaret. Ginny Hamilton also presents the show and the three of them make up the 'Sunday Best' Team.

Jim also presents 'The Open Page' ably assisted by Margaret Aird. 'The Open Page is a programme which draws its material from the printed page wherever and whatever that may be stories, poetry, newspaper articles etc.. He also plays Jazz, Blues and other cool music for that time of Tuesday night (10pm till midnight).
