Getting Started: Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland)

Off The Record spoke to Vic Galloway, BBC Radio Scotland presenter about life in the music business...


Q: How did you get your start in music?

A: I left school and started a band with friends. I worked at it and other bands for around 8 years, before I started working at record labels and behind the scenes in music. I then got a break and secured a job as a presenter at the BBC on Radio 1... I took it and the rest is history!


Q: What is the best thing about your work?

A: I'm a music obsessive, so the best thing about work is that I get to listen, watch and be immersed in my favourite thing all year round. It's certainly not the money!!!


Q: Give us one tip for anyone looking to work in music

A: Know your subject, stick to your guns and be polite and friendly to people... OK, that's 3 tips!!
