As well as a full complement of Circle members, the meeting was also attended by Ayr MSP John Scott and Margaret Toner, deputy leader of South Ayrshire Council, the Circle‘s most recent new member.
Special guests included Linda Lawson, general manager of Hourstons department store, Tracey Smith from Turnberry Hotel and Golf Resort, Margarette Bryan of Begg Scotland, James Hawkins and Stephen McGuire from Stewart Corporate Travel, Andrew Dickson of the West of Scotland Loan Fund, and clinical hypnotherapist Andrew Johnson.
West Sound Radio station director Brenda Ritchie and her team gave a detailed presentation about West Sound, and this was followed by a tour of the studio complex.
Elite Ayrshire Business Circle managing director Murdoch MacDonald said: “Having worked in radio myself, I particularly admired the professional manner with which the station presenters managed to cope with a studio full of guests while continuing to deliver their radio programme live on air.
“West Sound Radio is quite literally the voice of Ayrshire and South West Scotland. It is particularly impressive how it maintains its distinct local identity, being part of a giant international publishing and media group like Bauer.
“All our members and guests who attended and I are most grateful to Brenda Ritchie and everyone at West Sound Radio who worked so hard to make our visit so interesting, informative and enjoyable.”
West Sound Radio is part of the Bauer Publishing Group.
Under the management of four generations of the Bauer family, the Bauer Publishing Group has grown from its humble beginnings as a printing house into a worldwide publishing empire comprising 238 magazines worldwide in 15 countries, as well as its TV and radio stations.
