Robbie ShepherdAfter 35 years at the helm our Honorary Vice-President 
Robbie Shepherd is retiring as Presenter of Take the Floor. He  is a Scottish broadcasting legend and has been honoured for his services to Scottish dance music and culture, as well as his beloved Doric language. 

We wish Robbie, and his wife Esma, all the best, Saturday nights just won't be the same without you. Hopefully, we'll still see and hear you for many years to come on other projects.
