Ally was previously a host of BBC Radio 1's BBC Introducing show broadcast every Sunday night on the national radio station. The show aims to find the very best new 'under the radar' music from around the country giving upcoming bands a platform from which to be heard.

He has been known to be found at gigs around Scotland (including presenting live from T in the Park for BBC Scotland) and in the North supporting new and local music. With a conversational, informative yet light-hearted style, Ally is a new talent who has a very exciting future ahead of him.

Ally's musical taste became widely regarded after launching Detour Scotland which started as a podcast featuring unsigned Scottish bands. It soon gained a large dedicated following and a reputation for putting on gigs in new and unusual venues across the country.

His love of music began at home and his interest in radio further developed during his University years which he spent at Stirling University. While there Ally managed Air3, the University's Student Station, which in his own words was "a place full of bold ideas, arm-chancing, creativity and sing-a-longs". He did also gain a degree in Film and Media Studies.

Ally is also an avid football fan and has the honour of being the stadium announcer at St. Mirren Football Club entertaining and informing the crowd during match days. Having made a big impact at the 'Saints' Ally was invited to contribute to BBC Scotland's Off the Ball.

A man of many talents his other interests include snowboarding and playing the drums.

Ally says "It's an honour to be part of BBC Radio 1. To be able to go on-air every week, get really excited and present you the best music from north of the border before anyone else. Sunday evenings from midnight, come be part of our wee Scottish musical quest."
